Dementia and the Challenging Discharge: Challenges of Early-Onset Dementia - Foster City, CA

Join us as Geriatrician Elizabeth Landsverk, M.D., presents a topic of interest to elder care professionals, particularly to Discharge Planners and Registered Nurses. Early dementia is often not diagnosed and can be very dangerous to the patient living at home. They may seem cognitively fine, but may have a great deal of difficulty with executive function which can lead to inability to provide self-care, or inability to understand actions and consequences which may make them vulnerable to fraud, scams and elder financial abuse. Professionals involved with evaluating patients discharging from a hospital, treating or caring for patients/clients who may have undiagnosed dementia will benefit most from the information presented.

“Have You Ever Spoken To A Geriatrician? Ask Her Anything!” - Elizabeth Landsverk, MD

  • 2384 Pacific Drive Santa Clara, CA, 95051 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Have you ever actually spoken with a Geriatrician? Geriatricians are medical doctors who are specialists in ‘geriatrics’ which means that they treat patients specifically over the age of 65. Over 300,000 Americans are turning 65 every MONTH! What makes a geriatrician different from an internist or family practitioner? They are specialists in over 65 bodies and minds. They understand how medications and illness affect us differently than when we were younger, and treat accordingly. Unfortunately, there are only 6,000 Geriatricians in the US to treat so many patients. Fortunately, Dr. Landsverk is in our area and will share her experiences and observations with us. She will discuss ‘aging well’ and what that means regarding nutrition, exercise and social engagement, as well as medications. Bring your questions and challenges and be ready for a very interesting and educational evening geared to elder care professionals and anyone interested in the issues of aging."
