NOTE: This event has already occurred.

Opening a Community Conversation

Memory changes can be a normal part of aging. Progressive cognitive changes that impact functioning, though, may be a sign of dementia. Uncertainty and fear about memory loss can lead to isolation and stigma. These concerns affect individuals, families and communities. Join us to discuss the aging brain, dementia care and caregiver support.
