We discuss the best way to explain dementia, when to talk about it, and what types of emotions and feelings you can expect from your child. Learn how to create a safe space for conversation and how to encourage more meaningful interactions between children and their loved ones.

  1. Corinne and Melissa are amazingly insightful and empathic. They are fabulous educators for everyone, from kids to adults, from physicians to patients and families.

    As a geriatrician myself, I have learned so much from Corinne and Melissa (and Peggy)!!
