Dementia Chats™ -While We Can still Can
Voices of Those Diagnosed with Dementia
Dementia Chats™ was created with the intention to educate people living with dementia; their care partners both family and friends as well as professionals and advocates.
Our Mission is to Shift Our Dementia Care Culture™. Our goal is to remove stigmas related to the disease by engaging people in conversation, answering their questions, listening to their comments and raising awareness in a positive light. We are firm believers in giving hope and empowering others to live with the disease not as the disease. The general format of the sessions is interview style. Lori La Bey will facilitate each session. She will be asking out Experts Living with Dementia questions and pulling participants into the conversation to get their questions answered and their comments heard.
Lori La Bey, Founder of Alzheimer’s Speaks will host the webinars. She is a speaker and trainer on dementia and caregiving. Her mother has struggled with dementia over 30 yrs and is now in her end stages of the disease.
