This is the last in the series on Successful Aging: What You Need to Know Whatever Your Age. In this class, Dr Stringer will discuss the changes in mental ability associated with healthy aging, as well as the medical conditions of mild cognitive impairment and dementia. It is important as we age to know the difference between normal forgetfulness and the symptoms that may indicate we have a medical condition that is affecting our ability to function. While there is no "cure" for aging or for dementia, there are things we can do to help ourselves and our loved ones as we deal with the prospect of cognitive decline.
The format of these classes will be a combination of lecture and video with an opportunity for Q&A at the end of each session.
Dr. Tony Stringer is a internationally known clinical neuropsychologist. He and his colleagues at Emory have pioneered research in the use of cognitive rehabilitation to treat dementia and related conditions, and have shown changes in brain function as a result of their treatments. Dr. Stringer is a Professor of Rehabilitation Medicine at Emory University, and is also the Director of the Emory Rehabilitation Neuropsychology Division. Dr. Stringer has been a member of UUCA for over 25 years, most of that time serving as a UUCA lay minister.Sign up here to receive a Zoom Link for the whole series.
