Studies show loneliness and social isolation are risk factors for cognitive decline. This course will cover validated tools to assess social activity and loneliness and provide intervention strategies to address social isolation and loneliness and reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s.

Participants in this webinar will be able to:

  • List 6 or more modifiable risk factors for dementia.
  • Summarize the link between social isolation, loneliness, and dementia.
  • Identify interventions and strategies to address social isolation and loneliness with a special focus on adults ages 45 and older.
  • Participants will be able to identify special considerations for high-risk populations.
