With heightened awareness and better diagnostic tools, individuals are being diagnosed with cognitive impairment and dementia much earlier in the disease process and are seeking support in coping with their illness. Come learn how to use a strengths-based approach to adapt and implement counseling methods and meaningful activities to best support the individual with memory loss and their care partners. Videos and interactive exercises will be used to teach clinicians effective strategies. Programs and resources available through the Alzheimer's Association will be discussed.
