Activity Code: 31759

Have you ever worried whether some of the memory challenges you or a loved one are experiencing are "normal"? As we age, our brains and our bodies undergo changes. We may experience instances where we process information more slowly, or we may have trouble recalling names or dates; these are examples of typical age-related changes. But what are the indicators that these changes may be due to something more serious, such as mild cognitive impairments or dementia? When is the time to visit the doctor for an evaluation? Hope Hospice's dementia specialist will discuss all of the above questions and more.

Medication and You
Date: Tuesday, October 18, 2022
Tim: 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM
Activity Code: 31760

Prescription medications can help us live longer and healthier lives, but any medication has the potential to do harm. Many of us also take over-the-counter medications and supplements along with eating different kinds of food. All of this may cause potential confusion or complications. Learn more about how to take your medications safely, ways to make it easier to remember to take medications, and examples of how to organize and keep track of them. Additionally, learn about what foods may interact with your medications, recommendations for how to renew medications on the same schedule, save money, expiration dates, and proper disposal of medications. We will also share what are 5 groups of medications to avoid when possible, how your local health care provider and pharmacist can provide guidance, and other resources to help you and your loved ones with medication safety–such an important part of our lives.
