On September 8th we hosted "My loved one has been diagnosed with Dementia. Now what? " This event was led by Melissa McGee, Director of The Courtyard at Youville Place and Susan Snow, Director of Marketing at Youville Place.

Finding out that a loved one has been diagnosed w/ any form of dementia including Alzheimer’s can be life-changing and bring about many questions and concerns for the family. Currently, there is no cure, and often a family member becomes the primary caregiver. While this is an act of love and can often make a difference in your loved one’s quality of life, it can also be a very stressful and emotionally overwhelming journey. But take heart, there are many resources available in the area to help you navigate this journey. In the conversation we delved into those supports and discuss when and if it makes sense to seek the supports of an assisted living community.
