Brookdale Offers Free Caregiver Webinar, Resources for National Alzheimer’s Awareness Month
BRENTWOOD, Tenn., Oct. 28, 2014 – As the number of people living with Alzheimer’s disease soars, so does the number of family caregivers. Over 15 million people are taking care of loved ones with dementia in the home, according to the Alzheimer’s Association. Sixty percent say the emotional stress is high and more than a third report depression symptoms. To help, Brookdale is offering a free webinar for family caregivers during November, National Alzheimer’s Awareness Month. The company, America’s largest provider of dementia care, is also offering a web-based Alzheimer’s Resource Center and other expert information.
The webinar, “Caring for Your Loved One With Dementia,” is open to anyone caring at home for a person with dementia, as well as others concerned about the issue. Kelly Scott, Brookdale’s vice president of dementia care, will field questions on a range of issues from behavior to family dynamics. It will be held at 2 p.m. CDT on November 7, 2014. To participate, caregivers should register online.
