Today, I plan to join a teleconference hosted by Caregiver Teleconnection. These telephone conferences are free to people who are caregivers or otherwise interested and I have joined several of them over the last couple of years. I'm looking forward especially to today's call because the "expert" is Tam Cummings, PhD. I listened in to a call with her previously and she is full of information about dementia. Her talk today is entitled "How to Communicate with Alzheimer's Patients." I encourage you to join these free calls to learn more about NCD (neurocognitive disorder, which is the new name for dementia/Alzheimer's disease).
