Recorded: December 6, 2017 – Dementia is a broad category of brain diseases that cause a long-term and often gradual decrease in the ability to think and remember that is great enough to affect a person’s daily functioning. In Maine alone, the number of individuals living with Alzheimer’s will increase from 37,000 individuals today to over 53,000 individuals by 2020.
In this ninety-minute webinar, participants will learn how assistive technologies (AT) can be effectively utilized in each of the stages of dementia. In addition, AT resources related to dementia will be discussed.
