Conversations around Memory and Cognitive Change  presented by Felicia Greenfield.

 

It is true that we begin to slow down cognitively as we age. Sometimes blips in memory and thinking are normal, but sometimes there’s reason for concern.

This presentation will begin with background information:

  • What is the “aging brain” like?
  • What is the difference between normal cognitive aging versus memory loss due to mild cognitive impairment or dementia?

Mainly we will focus on what to do when your interactions with another person suggest memory loss. What should I do when a friend’s memory raises concerns?

  • Should you bring up the issue? Often times, people experiencing memory loss are unaware of their condition, and it can be unsafe for them to drive or even live alone.
  • How can you start the conversation?
  • Then what?

Finally, what if you are concerned about your own memory? What resources are available?

There will be time for Q/A after the presentation.

 

Felicia Greenfield is the executive director of the Penn Memory Center, overseeing clinical and research operations and caregiver support programs. A licensed social worker, she has nearly two decades’ experience in caring for older adults living with dementia and their family support systems.
