20 Questions, 100 Answers, 6 Perspectives (on Dementia)

What is dementia? How should the doctor share a diagnosis of dementia with the person and the family members? What happens after the diagnosis? What are some best-care practices?

This informative 2-disk program is a compilation of honest answers about dementia from medical doctors, professional care partners, family members of those diagnosed with dementia, and a person living with it. Filled with thoughtful perspectives and firsthand experiences, this DVD will both empower families to understand and deal with dementia on their own terms and encourage healthcare professionals to think beyond their current views of dementia to provide better person- and family-centered care.

The topics include:

• Maintaining a respect for the personhood of each person
• Ways to help persons with dementia to continue to live purposefully
• Recognizing differences in forms of dementia
• Medication and behavioral concerns
• End-of-life care

Everyone will be informed, encouraged, and challenged by these well-rounded insights.

Hosted by journalist Julie Anderson, this program features Judy Berry, Mona Johnson, G. Allen Power, MD, Richard Taylor, PhD, Sarah Rowan, PhD, and Bill Thomas, MD.
