The Inevitable Hospital Stay – How to Advocate for Your Loved One with Dementia (Duration: 2 hours/120 minutes)
You might not think that your loved one living with dementia will need to go to the hospital. But unfortunately, most people living with dementia will require multiple stays as the disease progresses. Not because of the dementia, but because of an increase in falls, hip fractures, pneumonia, other conditions, or injuries. Dementia is rarely the primary diagnosis in a hospital, but offers special challenges that can significantly affect a person’s hospital stay and treatment outcome.
Learn with Teepa Snow why being prepared is key to advocating for your loved one when he or she no longer can.
