Dementia Chats Recording on Wandering & Driving

Dementia Chats Recording –

August 12th, 2014

Today we discussed the topic of wandering.  What does this word mean do our experts living with the disease even like the word and agree with the subjective definition.  What about other words? How would they define a crisis situation vs. a care partners view and why is it important to understand the difference. We also got into driving once again.

I personally, have never not walked away from a session of Dementia Chats without learning something new or changing my perception on a topic.  I truly find this fascinating discussions. I hope you can join us for the next live Dementia Chats on August 26th, at the same time each 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month – 3pm EST, 2pm CST, 1pm MST< 12pm PST and 8pm London time.
