Buzz Session 2024: Dementia vs. Normal Aging
Tuesday, February 13, 2024
Have you ever worried whether some of the memory challenges you or a loved one are experiencing are “normal”? Could they be a sign of something else? 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 can be 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 impairment or dementia? When might it be time to visit the doctor or to get an evaluation?
What you will learn: Age-related changes that nearly everyone experiences, explanations for the onset of mild cognitive impairment that don’t always indicate dementia, learn how someone gets evaluated for dementia, and more!
