Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementia Disorders - October 19, 2012, Webinar Recording

On October 19, the Department hosted a national public webinar to educate all interested parties on the strategies for communicating with patients who have Alzheimer’s Disease or Related Dementias (ADRD). The webinar served as an opportunity to better understand the disease and its signs and symptoms. Another goal of the webinar was to teach how a diagnosis of ADRD may enhance an elder’s vulnerability for abuse, neglect, or exploitation, and how to protect the individual who may be taken advantage of. More than 400 people from across the country participated.
