19 Sep Focus on Aging: Matters of the Brain
Over 12% of American households are affected by dementia, a syndrome characterized by global cognitive decline that interferes with every day activities. The brain changes that result from the various causes of dementia are not part of the normal aging process. The symptoms associated with the various causes of dementia represent unique challenges for medical professionals, care providers, and families. In her presentation, Dr. Nicole Absar, Medical Director of Copper Ridge Memory Clinic in Sykesville, Maryland, will discuss the various types of dementia, symptoms associated with each unique disease, recommended treatment paths, and the various types of diagnostic tests available.
