"The Lobes of the Brain"

Conversations with Dr. Tam Cummings - A Monthly Education Series for the Dementia Caregiver

Thursday, February 4, 2021 11:00 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. ET, 10:00 a.m. - 11:15 a.m. CT

Featuring Guest Speaker Tam Cummings, Ph.D., Gerontologist
Author, Untangling Alzheimer’s: The Guide for Families and Professionals

Dementia attacks and destroys the brain during the disease process. As each lobe of the brain becomes damaged, the Person with Dementia will display different and unique behaviors indicating which lobe of the brain is being affected. Learn about the lobes of the brain, what they should do and what they begin to do once cellular structures, neurotransmitters and normal function are impaired.


The behaviors displayed by a PWD serves as clues to how far along they are in their dementia journey and can indicate what to expect next.  Knowing the changes in brain function helps prepare care plans incorporating the anticipated decline.
