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 Alzheimerâ€™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 elderâ€™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.
