June is Alzheimer's & Brain Awareness Month. This is a difficult issue to address, but just because it's difficult doesn't mean we can avoid it. The best thing we can do is be informed. In fact, not realistically considering if someone close to you has dementia, it will compound the problem for everyone involved. Dementia can often hide the symptom during casual interactions.
Here you will find three resources on dementia & Alzheimer's kindly made available by St. Luke's:
1) An extensive & informative PowerPoint presentation
2) A list of resources for Idaho residents
3) A questionnaire to help determine if someone may need a professional evaluation
Please let us know if you have any questions.
Occasionally we like to post articles that give you some insight into how we form our opinions or stay informed.
