Dementia Education and Awareness Event
Please join us on Monday, April 29, 2019 from 3-5PM at the Belgrade Community Library for an informative afternoon!
Through a generous grant from Montana Geriatric Education Center (MTGEC), the Belgrade Community Library is thrilled to bring a presentation and panel on dementia and Alzheimer’s disease to the Belgrade area. Below is a snapshot of the event, as well as bios from the panelists and a short description of their talk.
- Dr. Kathryn Borgenicht (Dr. B): Dementia from a physicians prospective: what are important issues to know about and discuss what can you expect from medical care
- Jeremy Glover: Dementia 101 in the Gallatin Valley – Jeremy Glover
- Whitney Thompson: You are not alone. We will talk about the difference between Alzheimer’s and dementia, basic communication tips, and resources available through the Alzheimer’s Association.
- Heidi Wagner: Breaking the Sound Barrier at Koelsch Communities CONNECT THRIVE EXPERIENCE The Fine Print Hearing loss has been linked to numerous negative health outcomes – like social isolation, falling, mortality, and the development of dementia. Immersive Listening is available to help! Try a one-on-one Immersive Listening conversation with your loved one today, and hear the difference. Half of adults over 75 experience hearing loss, and Immersive Listening is Koelsch Communities’ response.
