As one of the most misunderstood types of dementia affecting the elderly today, understanding Alzheimer’s and how it affects the brain is important not only for those diagnosed with the disease but also those who support their daily care. In this course, you will understand the basics of the disease and progression; behavior and communication issues; safety of the individual and how to create a safe environment; and resources for support including elder benefits.

She also has a Certificate on Aging from Boston University School of Social Work. Michele has worked in education and social services for over 15 years.
