The 2018 Fall Caregiver Seminar explores four approaches to dementia care‒ medication, knowledge, faith and technology‒essential to both the family caregiver and the health care professional. Ken Basinger will give an overview of pharmacological approaches to care, discussing some of the many medications used to treat dementia-related conditions. Behavioral neurologist, Dr. Mary Quiceno, will explore non-pharmacological approaches to recognizing needs and managing interactions. Chaplain David Lowe will guide health care workers and family members through stress-free planning for end of life. Drs.
