A Roadmap for Care

Someone in Your Life has Dementia: A Roadmap for Care is a one-hour program offered virtually and in-person from noon to 1 p.m. on the second Wednesday of every other month (even months). Anyone caring for an individual living with a form of dementia would benefit from this presentation by Susan Johnson, Dementia Care Specialist. The presentation will help prepare and guide caregivers, while building confidence for the road ahead. It will address common caregiver concerns, such as:

  • Whether recently diagnosed or not, what do you need to know about caring for someone living with dementia?
  • As the disease progresses, how do you know what to expect and what your person needs? 

For more information, contact Susan Johnson at 262-605-6602. Register online for the program.
