End-Stage Dementia and Hospice Workshop is May 18
End-Stage Dementia and Hospice Workshop
NEWTOWN, CT — How can you recognize the symptoms of end-stage dementia in your loved one, and how can hospice help with their care?
Find out at a workshop sponsored by Regional Hospice and Home Care of Western CT, Inc. titled “End-Stage Dementia and Hospice” on Friday, May 18, 2012 at the Newtown Senior Center in Newtown, CT. Lunch will be served at noon, and the program begins at 1:00 p.m.
“Diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease and stroke may cause patients to have symptoms of dementia,” said Linda Pinckney, nurse liaison at Regional Hospice and Home Care, who will present the workshop. “Over time the symptoms may progress until the patient can no longer care for himself.”
The workshop will review common symptoms that are indicative of end-stage dementia and how hospice care can help both patients and caregivers. Additional clinical staff from Regional Hospice and Home Care will participate and answer questions.
