After the Diagnosis

    AFTER a “dementia” diagnosis is made.…explore common myths about how dementia impacts behavior and communication

 Participants will learn to Cope without Regret:

 •       Grieve losses imposed by disease

•       Shift expectations

•       Be indirect and creative

•       Agree whenever possible

•       Comfort and be curious

•       Encourage and find successful activities
