80% to 90% of patients with dementia develop at least one distressing symptom over the course of their illness, and behavioral disturbances or psychotic symptoms in dementia often precipitate early nursing home placement. Is dementia a disease or does it rather describe a group of symptoms that affects our clients in several aspects of their lives.

There are so many myths about dementia. How do we tease out the myths from the truth? Join us and learn what you need to know about dementia to best help and advocate for your clients.
