This lecture is provided by the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Boise State University.

Due to the prevalence of Alzheimer’s disease and many other diseases that cause dementia, virtually everyone knows, or will know, someone who is affected. Much information exists about various types of dementia and what they do to the brain, but most people are largely unaware of the ways that interpersonal interactions, many of which are counter-intuitive, can significantly improve the lives of persons living with this affliction. This lecture will feature real-world examples that will give members the skills they need to interact meaningfully with friends and loved ones living with dementia.
