Review by: Carol on November 9, 2012
very informative, especially as I and friends are getting older.
Review by: Brian on November 9, 2012
There was an excellent mix of theoretical underpinnings, signs/symptoms "in the real world," and compensatory strategies.Believe it or not I felt that the presenter's comment about imagery as a compensatory strategy "not working for me," was one of the best small things. It pointed out, indirectly yet forcefully, that one needs to consider what works for a given individual and that often this will require data gathering from the individual and their family/caregivers.
