The brain is a complex organ, and like the rest of our bodily organs, it ages over time. To understand how aging impacts the brain, it is important to look at brain aging in three categories: physiological impacts, changes in cognition and changes in social psychology. When working with aging adults and their families, it is important to understand the basics of brain aging. This can be especially helpful in distinguishing normal brain aging verses abnormal signs of aging. Join this month’s web seminar to learn how to communicate the changes in the brain, and learn about the resources that exist to help families navigate these brain changes.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Describe how aging affects the anatomy of the brain;
  • Identify normal and abnormal changes in cognition as a person ages;
  • Describe how age can change emotions and social behavior; and,
  • List resources to help families when they suspect that their loved is experiencing abnormal brain aging.
