Can you prevent getting dementia? Are there any
treatments for Alzheimer’s? What’s the newest research on what causes dementia? With scientists and clinicians making constant advances in the field of brain disease, it can be overwhelming just trying to keep up with all the information, much less trying to understand it.

In a clear and candid way, Dr. Forester, in partnership with Artis Senior Living, will share the very latest news on the science of Alzheimer’s.

Online Webinar

Presented by Heather McKay, PhD, OT/L; Dr. Heather McKay is an occupational therapist, dementia care specialist and international trainer/speaker on topics related to dementia care and caregiver education

Family caregivers are supporting people living with dementia for a decade or longer. Recognizing changes throughout this long disease can feel like detective work. Dr. Heather McKay, will present a webinar focused on the five stages of dementia progression and strategies that work to support people in every stage.

Participants will learn how to adapt their help to match the person’s changing needs and foster more positive interactions throughout disease progression. Dealing with dementia is challenging, but when families and their myriad helpers understand the timeline and cooperate to redesign plans as the person’s needs change, they can provide the right support at the right time—improving life for the person living with dementia and each other.

The Best Anniversary

My husband has aphasia and has lost his ability to speak. It’s very frustrating for him, and it’s a sadness for me too. So imagine my surprise when Artis helped him celebrate our wedding anniversary. When I visited him that day, residents and staff were all gathered around the room, carrying a banner the residents had made—with my husband in the center, holding a bouquet of flowers and a card for me! They even helped him sign his name on the card—something he hadn’t been able to do in years! In a way, it was one of our best anniversary celebrations. Thank you Artis, from the bottom of my heart.
