Dementia is not a single disease, but rather an overall term — like heart disease — that covers a wide range of specific medical conditions, including its most common form, Alzheimer’s disease. This series will take a deeper dive into various disorders “Under the Dementia Umbrella.” Join us for this four-program series taking place from February – September:

  • June || Mental Health & the Aging Brain

Mental Health & The Aging Brain: Prevention, Diagnosis, & Treatment

Clinical Lead Therapist & Ordained Minister | Greenway Counseling & Wellness and New Day Winston Salem

This program is offered in partnership by: Alzheimer’s Association in North Carolina, The Age Coach & Senior Care Authority

June 9 | 6:00 – 7:30 PM (Webinar)

The purpose of this program is to provide an understanding of mental health issues that can occur prior to and after the diagnosis of a neurocognitive disorder.

For both the person with dementia and their care partners, participants will leave this program being able to identify concerning mental health symptoms, understand key differences in dementia and neurocognitive symptoms during diagnosis, and explain what interventions and treatments are available. Importantly, participants will also be able to articulate important preventative practices to care for mental health challenges and locate resources in the community for support.


All registrants will receive the Zoom Webinar Link prior to the programs they register for, as well as, a link to the recording following the program.
