Palliative Care and End-of-Life Planning

Event Date: Thursday, September 26th, 2019

It is unfortunate, but dementia symptoms will often worsen over time and individuals need to understand what to expect in the final stages. We hope to bring some clarity to the things caregivers can do for their loved ones and for themselves.

Join us for our latest free iGeriCare Live Event, which is an opportunity for you to learn from and interact with medical experts online. This time we are excited to sit down with guest expert Dr. Giulia-Anna Perri from Baycrest Health Sciences in Toronto.
