You can make a difference. Most people who receive a dementia diagnosis and their care partners head down a swift and steep slope to despair. Dr. John Zeisel will show you this does not have to be the case. Learning to change the focus and view the situation differently creates a frame of mind that leads to a better life. Isn’t that what it’s all about? Come learn how to change your focus, see things differently, and make the shift from despair to HOPE.
