Book Club – Dementia Reimagined

September 5, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Book Club – Dementia Reimagined by Tia Powell, MD
(available on Amazon.com)

Discussion led by Pam Lessig, MA, LPC, Caregiver Consultant

Join us on Thursday, September 5th from 2:00 – 3:30 pm in the Bernhardt Education room at the SECU Center for MemoryCare to discuss the book Dementia Reimagined:

Reimagining Dementia is a moving combination of medicine and memoir, peeling back the untold history of dementia, from the story of Solomon Fuller, a black doctor whose research at the turn of the twentieth century anticipated important aspects of what we know about dementia today, to what has been gained and lost with the recent bonanza of funding for Alzheimer’s at the expense of other forms of the disease. In demystifying dementia, Dr. Powell helps us understand it with clearer eyes, from the point of view of both physician and caregiver. Ultimately, she wants us all to know that dementia is not only about loss–it’s also about the preservation of dignity and hope.
