Navigating Memory Loss Part 1 of 3: Dementia Warning Signs, Diagnosis, & Relationship Transitions
Join Dr. Self and Amanda Cooper to discuss how to navigate a new dementia diagnosis in our current healthcare climate. This three-hour interactive talk will review several key factors of how to get an evaluation started, what an evaluation looks like and where you go from there.
Learn how to start the conversation with a primary care physician about the diagnostic process of memory loss, cognitive testing, and memory care. Most often family members fear how to bring it up with their loved one, especially if the person isn’t willing to help themselves. Dr. Corinne Self will provide details on what a cognitive assessment looks like, how referrals work, and what to expect from a physician after they’ve been diagnosed. This discussion will bring clarity and doctor recommendations on how to handle memory testing and the aftercare required for your loved one with a dementia diagnosis.
