Alzheimer’s disease is a type of dementia, but not all dementias are Alzheimer's disease. Join us for a one-hour webinar covering multiple types of dementia, including their onset presentation, behavioral and cognitive changes, and disease progression. The session also will discuss non-pharmacological approaches to dementia care, along with over-the-counter medications that advertise cognitive improvements and new medications to treat Alzheimer’s disease.

Participants in this webinar will be able to:

  • Compare and contrast the different types of dementia.
  • Describe two reversible causes of memory problems.
  • List three non-pharmacological approaches to address common dementia-related behaviors.
  • Describe how environmental changes can support the care of people living with dementia.
