AAACAP helps care managers Untangle Alzheimer’s with seminar

Friday, December 07, 2018

The Area Agency on Aging of the Capital Area, a CAPCOG division, will host Dr. Tam Cummings for her Untangling Alzheimer’s seminar so professional care-manager organizations and AAACAP partners can learn how to better recognize dementia related issues and recommend resources to people with dementia and their caregivers. The seminar will be from 1 to 4:30 p.m. Dec. 18 at the CAPCOG offices, 6800 Burleson Road, Building 310 Suite 165 in Austin.

Cummings, a nationally recognized gerontologist and dementia expert, will cover topics such as the stages of dementia, the eight most common forms of dementia, behaviors of the disease, and caregiver stress. AAACAP selected such topics so care-manager organizations can have more accurate knowledge about dementia and share information about the disease in their local communities. Cummings, who has spoken at previous AAACAP events, has worked in dementia communities for more than two decades and is dedicated and passionate about helping people learn about dementia care. She has authored, “Untangling Alzheimer’s, the Guide for Families and Professionals”.
