Our ability to remember things - big and small, important and irrelevant, far in the past or just a moment ago - is an integral part of how we live our lives in the moment and often informs our relationships with others. What happens when our memories are gone? What can we do to support a loved one with Dementia? All this and more in an engaging presentation with optional audience participation.
