In honor of June being Alzheimer's and Brain Awareness Month, our Dementia Services Educator, Pattie Gaudio, DC, ADC/MC, CADDCT, CDP, answers a frequently asked question: What is the Difference Between Alzheimer's disease and Dementia?
Joan and Dan have been married for many decades but recently, Dan’s memory was slipping. Joan’s goal is to care for him as she always had – no one else would love him and care for him the way she did. One Tuesday morning she went to get gas in the car on the way to her regular hair appointment – that’s when the neighbor called: “I just saw Dan walking down Jamestown Road – where is he off to? Should I pick him up?”
We appreciate our nurses and CNAs every day, but Nurses Week is a great opportunity to take the time to celebrate. We also want to support nurses in this year’s theme of becoming healthier in mind, body, and spirit. http://www.nursingworld.org/nnw
