The Impact Pain Has On A Person Living With Dementia

Video Interviews with Those Living with Dementia

Today we talk about the impact of pain on a person living with dementia, executive functions and driving.

A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL THAT HAVE SERVED OUR COUNTRY IN WHATEVER CAPACITY AS WELL AS THEIR FAMILIES AND FIRENDS WHO HAVE SUPPORTED THEM.

May we all take a moment of silence and pray for those who have served, those that are serving and those brave men and women who have lost their lives to protect us.

Mind Over Matter: Woodcarving And Dementia

 Mind over Matter:

Woodcarving And Dementia

 Eilon Mind Over Matter - Image of Brain Hemisphere - with caption - Final (3)

Today we are lucky to have Eilon Caspi Ph.D. Gerontologist & Dementia Behavior Specialist, Founder and Director of Dementia Behavior Consulting, Minneapolis, MN.   He specializes in evidence-based psychosocial strategies for prevention of various forms of distressing behavioral expressions.  We discuss his hobby of woodcarving which turned into an interactive tool for dementia, which is now displayed at the Cushing Center at Yale University.  As we discuss his project we also get many tips and techniques for living gracefully with dementia.
