Staging the Person with Dementia

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

THURSDAY, MAY 6, 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

Understanding how dementia moves through the brain and causes behavior changes allows families to determine how much damage the brain has suffered. Identifying which stage the person with dementia is in means you can know what behaviors or declines may follow, the amount of time the person with dementia is expected to be within each stage, how much brain tissue is remaining, and what to care plan for next.

Since people with dementia don’t look physically ill until Stage Six of the disease, these staging tools give us a better picture of the brain damage and resulting behaviors than relying on long-term memory social skills.
