“Understanding Parkinson’s & Dementia with Lewy Bodies” – Wilkes-Barre, PA (June 28th – 8:00am – 10:00am)


This webinar will shed some light on what makes this type of dementia – which is becoming more and more commonly diagnosed – different from Alzheimer’s disease, and how to best support an individual who is living with it.



Lewy Body Dementia is the second most commonly diagnosed dementia-related disease (after Alzheimer’s), but very few caregivers know much about it. This session will define what LBD is and review the two sub-types (Parkinson’s and Dementia with Lewy Bodies). It will outline the brain changes of the disease, including how those changes impact behavior, communication, and body movement. Also covered will be best practices for supporting individuals living with Lewy Body Dementia.

The seminar will be held from 8:00am to 10:00am on Tuesday, June 28th at the Hampton Inn & Suites (876 Schechter Drive, Wilkes-Barre, PA 18702). Cost is $30.

This session has been approved by NAB/NCERS for a total of 2.0 CEUs for NHAs, ALAs, and PCHAs!
