The recent controversial issue involving the use of drugs for behavior management of people living with dementia is the next topic in the ongoing Bethesda and Alzheimer’s Association Caregiver Education Series.

Join Dr. G. Allen Power, internationally acclaimed gerontologist, author and Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of Rochester, as he discusses ways to embrace current alternative practices, other than the use of medication, and addresses the most common challenges facing individuals living with dementia and their  caregivers, including how to:

· overcome communication challenges
· minimize anxiety and depression
· root out the causes of wandering
· gain insights into paranoia and delusional thinking
