Dementia Support Group

We are starting a Dementia Support Group for families, caregivers, and friends of loved ones with dementia facilitated by Dr. Landsverk. It will be held the First Wednesday of every Month, from 6:30-7:30 PM located at Hope Lutheran Church 600 42nd Avenue in San Mateo. Please join us!

Denial and the Family

Denial and the Family

Adult children and other family members often struggle to accept that an elder has dementia. Sometimes they believe that the elder is doing things 'on purpose'. Sharing experiences and listening to others' experiences can help understand the disease and the behaviors and realize that it is the 'disease' that is causing the behaviors.
