The topic for this live discussion is: OIB Services for Individuals with Dementia. Dementia describes a group of symptoms associated with a decline in memory or other thinking skills severe enough to reduce a person's ability to perform everyday activities. We invite you to share your success stories, tips, strategies, and concerns for working with older individuals with vision loss and signs of dementia.
Audrey Demmitt R.N., B.S.N. is with us today from Georgia. She has written and presented on Dementia and Vision Impairment and has worked with older adults as a nurse, an adjustment counselor, and support group leader.
