Free lecture on dementia and the caregiver burden at Queen’s Medical Center

Brain with Alzheimer's

What are the early signs of dementia?  What are the treatment options?  What are ways to ease the strain and stress of caring for someone with dementia?

Join Elizabeth Rhee, MD, Geriatrician at The Queen’s Medical Center, to learn more about what dementia is and how it can affect the health of both the patient and caregiver.

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, nearly 60 percent of Alzheimer’s and dementia caregivers rate the emotional stress of caregiving as high or very high; and more than one-third report symptoms of depression.

Learn practical ways to reduce caregiver strain with guest Pamela Scott-Yuen, Oahu Program Coordinator for the Alzheimer’s Association.  These include identifying and eliminating personal barriers and changing your response to stress.

Reservations are required.
