The recent Town Hall Forum, The Team Approach to Alzheimer's Care, provided lots of useful information and some handy tips. Here are a few of the materials that were reviewed.
Dr. Sewell's Presentation - How to Cope with Behavioral and Emotional Changes
Alejandra Ceja-Aguilar's Tips - Share the Care
