Dementia: The Unmet Need
December 5, 2019 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm$5 – $10
Aging 2.0 Chicago Presents Dementia: The Unmet Need
Keynote speaker Dr. Aggarwal, will provide a vision for how expressions of unmet need in people with cognitive changes related to dementia can be addressed in practical ways by both senior living staff members and family care partners, with a focus on finding solutions that acknowledge the person’s identity as a unique individual and as part of a family of origin story.
In a panel moderated by Erin Washington from Embodied Labs; Dr. Aggarwal, Janis Engelsman, Tricia Mullin, and Carrie Shaw will discuss this same topic from each of their perspectives as practitioners, trainers, administrators and industry professionals.
Included will be portions of The Dima Lab, an immersive VR experience where audience volunteers will embody the 1st-person perspective of a Lebanese American woman living with Lewy Body dementia and Parkinsonian symptoms and provide material for an interactive panel.
Come away from this event with:
- An enlarged understanding of what life with dementia may look, sound and feel like
- Practical tools for engaging with people expressing unmet needs
- More confidence to promote the highest quality of life possible for people living with cognitive change
