A Moment in Time: A Day in the Life of a Person Living With Dementia

August 17, 2021 or September 21, 2021 at 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EST

The impact of dementia can provide challenges to complete daily activities that were once considered simple. Challenging? Yes, but not necessarily impossible. You may be surprised that many challenges are not related to memory but due to changes in sensory perception. Learn first-hand about these changes directly from persons living with dementia and how they compensate for their daily challenges.
