Caring for Family Members Living with Dementia: Navigating the Ambiguity

with Darby Morhardt, PhD, LCSW

 

Almost 6 million Americans are living with some form of neurocognitive impairment or dementia that can differ dramatically in the types of symptoms they express.  This talk will cover the different dementia disorders, provide a path toward navigating complex challenges families face and identify the available options for treatment and care.

 

  • Darby Morhardt is an Associate Professor at the Mesulam Center for Cognitive Neurology and Alzheimer’s Disease and Director of the Miller Alzheimer Family Support Program, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.
  • The focus of Dr. Morhardt’s work has been on the impact of cognitive impairment on the individual, family and their social networks.
