This all starts with education and discussion, and this show will delve into a wide range of topics, from recognizing early warning signs and discussing the latest research to offering practical caregiving tips and strategies for maintaining the most dignified care!
One of the most powerful aspects of “Dementia Divas” is the platform it provides for ALL voices to be heard!
