What families can do if they notice signs of dementia during the holidays

What families can do if they notice signs of dementia during the holidays

In this episode on the Living with Alzheimer's podcast, Christoph interviews Kathryn Ribant Payne, Communications Director for Alzheimer's Association Michigan Chapter. 

They discuss how call volume for Alzheimer’s Association’s 24/7 Helpline at 800.272.3900 increases dramatically during the holiday season. This is typically due to families seeking assistance after observing parents and grandparents struggling with day-to-day tasks and other memory issues.

Kathryn and Christoph discuss potential signs of developing dementia, share our stories of observing parents and grandparents exhibiting some of those signs of dementia, and discuss what families can do whenever they have questions or concerns about their observations.
