Dementia Chats- Advocating and Raising Awareness Through Film

Dementia Chats- Advocating and Raising Awareness Through Film

On June 14th, 2015 we discussed what it is like to be an advocate helping raise awareness through film and more.

Welcome To Dementia Chats where the voices of those diagnosed with dementia are heard.

Dementia Chats™ was created with the intention to educate people living with dementia; their care partners both family and friends as well as professionals and advocates.  Our Experts are those diagnosed with dementia. We have been doing this series since July of 2012.

All sessions are recorded and are archived.
