2019 NADRC Webinar (June 4, 2019): Caregiving for people living with non-Alzheimer’s (weblink/pdf)

2019 NADRC Webinar:
Caregiving for people living with non-Alzheimer’s
In recent years, research on Alzheimer’s disease has increased significantly, but there has been less focus on other types of dementias. Because less is known about non-Alzheimer’s dementias, under- and misdiagnosis is common, treatment protocols are lacking and it is not clear how best to support people with these dementias and their caregivers. This web seminar will provide an overview of the three most common causes of dementia after Alzheimer’s disease, which include Lewy body dementia, frontotemporal degeneration and vascular dementia. Presenters will draw upon available information to describe caregiving for people living with these dementias. Special attention will be given to how caregiving for people with Lewy body dementia and frontotemporal degeneration may be different from Alzheimer’s disease. Case studies of caregiving for people with Lewy body dementia and frontotemporal degeneration will be highlighted.
