HOPE FOR THE CAREGIVER hosted by Peter Rosenberger. Airs LIVE Nationally On Sundays at 3 PM (Central) HOPEFORTHECAREGIVER.com
Author and Dementia Care expert, Tracey Maxfield, RN, called the show to answer the question MANY families have about an aging loved one: Do They Have Dementia?
Losing your car keys doesn't mean you have dementia (I AM SO GLAD FOR THAT!!!), but the ability to manage money, and other higher brain activities may indicate a problem. Tracey brings her 35 years of experience to bear on this tough issue. The author of the soon to be released book ESCAPING THE RABBIT HOLE, offers a wealth of guidance for families struggling with a loved one with dementia.
