Caring for a person with Alzheimer's disease or another dementia during the winter months can present immense challenges. Colder weather makes it more difficult to get out and fewer hours of sunlight can present difficulties with sleep and energy levels. Join us to learn how to modify everyday, in-home activities to provide structure and promote wellbeing at every stage of dementia.
