CHANGING YOUR DEMENTIA CARE MINDSET  Thursday, April 18  11:00am-12:00pm  FREE  Repetitive questions. Personal insults and verbal aggression. Making a mess by rummaging in cabinets and drawers. Why does my loved one with dementia drive me so crazy? The fact is, your loved one is doing the best they can to communicate their needs with a failing brain. This is where you become Sherlock Holmes. Shifting the way you think about the dementia experience will actually reduce these troubling behaviors and bring you both greater peace.
