The Longest Loss: Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia Program Tuesday

This excellent program produced by the Hospice Foundation of America Living with Grief series will be shown from 1-3:30 pm on Tuesday, May 5th at the Sawtooth Mountain Clinic’s Corcoran Classroom.

With Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia, grief doesn’t wait for death. Grieving can begin in the doctor’s office with confirmation of the illness. Over a span of what may be a decade, multiple losses associated with these diseases become part of everyday life for millions of patients, their families and friends. After the death, survivors’ grief may be complicated by the way the disease has changed their relationship with the deceased. Through a combination of candid, compelling interviews and discussion, experts will identify how medical and social service professionals can best help patients, families and themselves cope with loss and grief associated with these progressive illnesses.

The program is free and open to the public. 3 hours of continuing education is available. Contact Care Partners at 387-3788 or for more information.
