He will discuss the associated behavioural and psychological symptoms that manifest as the disease progresses, and explain how these may differ from typical aging concerns. 

Next, Mrs. Claire Webster, former caregiver and Founder of the McGill Dementia Education Program, will share practical advice on how to care for a person living with dementia.
