What About The Kids? Dementia Through the Eyes of a Child

What About The Kids? Dementia Through the Eyes of a Child


Tuesday, September 21


@


5:30 PM



7:00 PM


Dementia is often difficult for an adult to understand; it is even more difficult for a child. Too often children blame themselves when a difficult change occurs. For children who have someone living with dementia in their lives, it can feel like they are losing two people: the person who has dementia and the family member providing the care. In this presentation, we will explore ways to help a child better understand what is happening and how to cope.

Free to attend! Registration required.
