Understanding the Challenges of Communication with Persons with Dementia
A recording of our fifth Live Event where we gave the public the opportunity to engage with medical experts from McMaster University and discuss important topics related to dementia.
Drs. Richard Sztramko and Anthony Levinson reviewed the symptoms of dementia and discussed how to best prepare to discuss concerns with a family doctor. We also looked at what questions you should ask and what tests may be required to confirm a diagnosis of dementia.
