The Nine Most Common Forms of Dementia

Conversations with Dr. Tam Cummings - A Monthly Education Series for the Dementia Caregiver

THURSDAY, APRIL 1, 2021 11:00 A.M.- 12:15 P.M. ET, 10:00 A.M.- 11:15 A.M. CT

Featuring Guest Speaker Tam Cummings, Ph.D., Gerontologist Author, Untangling Alzheimer’s: The Guide for Families and Professionals

Nine dementias account for 98% of all dementias. Recognizing the signs and features of each dementia helps family and professional caregivers recognize and identify which form or forms of dementia their loved one is displaying.

Knowing the form of dementia a loved one has allows us to provide better care, teaches family caregivers to recognize and understand behaviors associated with particular dementias and helps us realistically plan for care that will include falls, fractures and UTIs.
