Understanding & Managing Responsive Behaviours in Persons with Dementia

Event Date: Wednesday, November 7th 2018

A recording of the third Live Event where we gave the public the opportunity to engage with medical experts from McMaster University and discuss important topics related to dementia.

During the event, our experts Drs. Anthony Levinson and Richard Sztramko looked at what apathy and depression are and how they present in persons with dementia. We discussed caregiving strategies for these behaviours and outlined treatments that are currently available.


Dr. Richard Sztramko

Geriatrician, Assistant Professor, McMaster University

Through his work with patients with dementia and their families, Dr. Sztramko came to understand that there is a desire and need for online education about dementia that has been developed by experts in geriatrics. This inspired him to pursue the creation of iGeriCare.


Dr. Anthony Levinson

Neuropsychiatrist, Director, Division of e-Learning Innovation, McMaster University

At the Division of e-Learning Innovation, Dr. Levinson exercises his passion for researching and developing online solutions to deliver high-quality health educational experiences to both the public and health care professionals. IGeriCare provides a unique opportunity to leverage his expertise in mental health and learning technologies to create a modern and engaging approach to dementia education.
