These interactive webinars allow participants to learn about dementia, join the conversation, and ask questions. "With one in three elders dying with Alzheimer's disease or other dementia, there's a good chance that caring for someone with the disease or having it ourselves will be a part of our lives," explained Juliet Holt Klinger, vice president of dementia care for Brookdale.  "If we truly want to be prepared, the best tactic may be to focus on the 'how' of living an optimum life with dementia. After working with persons living with dementia for thirty years, I can tell you that there is hope, there is joy, there are continuing relationships, and, yes, there can be an optimum life."
