Join us as Executive Director of MemoryCare, Dr. Virginia Templeton, and Dr. Della Simon discuss Aging and Memory Loss in WNC:

Dementia is a significant public health issue and is increasing exponentially. In WNC, with an older population, we are at the forefront of the aging curve and have higher incidence of dementia than in other parts of the state and country. In this meeting you will learn about MemoryCare’s work helping families whose lives have been impacted by dementia. 

Hear about MemoryCare’s evidence-based approach to addressing this challenging disease and about other resources in the community. Come and learn about normal changes of aging and how to know when changes experienced may be indicative of an underlying cognitive disorder in need of attention. Learn strategies to lower risk of memory disorders and ways of managing them when they occur.  

We’ll review case studies and have opportunity for Q&A.

Wednesday, September 18th, 12:00pm - 2:00pm
