The brain is a complex organ, and like the rest of our bodily organs, it ages over time. While the brain ages a little differently for everyone, there are some common effects.

Some people may develop brain aging diseases that abnormally affect memory, cognition and functioning. People affected by brain aging diseases may exhibit symptoms that interfere with daily life. These symptoms can be scary and overwhelming to older adults and their families.

Professionals are often consulted for information and support about aging brain issues. Register for this web seminar to learn how to communicate with families about normal and abnormal brain aging and learn about resources to help families navigate these brain changes.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:
• Learn how aging affects the brain;

• Understand the differences between brain aging diseases;

• Identify ways abnormal brain aging can affect daily life; and,

• Discover resources to recommend to older adults and their families.
