Hickory – You are invited to Patrick Beaver Memorial Library on November 20, 2019 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. as we learn about neurocognitive disorders and living with dementia and the study of dementia medications. VayaHealth’s Geriatric and Adult Mental Health Specialty Team will present two training sessions during the program: “Neurocognitive Disorder: Living with Dementia” and “It’s a Brain Thing: The Study of Dementia Medications.”

The first class, will be at 10:00 a.m. Commonly referred to as dementia, neurocognitive disorders can affect the way people perceive and engage with the world around them. This course, created from evidence-informed materials, looks at various classifications of neurocognitive disorders (NCDs), delirium and common changes associated with each type. Tips for caregivers are provided.

The second class will be at 11:00 a.m. Research continues to refine what we know about dementia, and information can change frequently. This evidence-informed class provides participants with information specific to this classification of medication, best practices and warning signs.

Contact hours are available on the day of the program.
