Recognizing the early signs of Alzheimer's disease is vital, especially for early detection and diagnosis. Frequently, family members are the first to notice these signs, but initiating a conversation about scheduling a doctor's appointment can be daunting. Overcoming resistance or denial can further complicate the situation post-diagnosis, leaving both the individual and their family uncertain about the next steps. This webinar addresses the challenges surrounding Alzheimer's diagnoses and explores effective strategies to navigate this journey. As professionals, arming ourselves with the knowledge to help older adults and their families is key. Join us to gain insights into overcoming obstacles, providing valuable support, and accessing helpful resources for those you serve.

Participants in this webinar will be able to:

  • Review 10 warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease and the importance of having a diagnosis.
  • Discuss challenges of early detection and planning.
  • Learn communication strategies to overcome challenges of an Alzheimer’s diagnosis.
  • Discover resources for professionals and families for diagnosis, care, and support.
