Families often see changes in aging loved ones during holiday visits. To help you navigate questions that may arise during the holidays, AgeWell Middle Tennessee, a local non-profit, is offering complimentary 30-minute phone consultations through the Eldercare Coach program now through the end of February.

AgeWell invites you to participate in a lunchtime webinar on December 10, 2021 to learn when to be concerned about memory loss and other cognitive changes in an older loved one. Learn how to recognize when your loved one may need an evaluation for Alzheimer’s or a related dementia, what’s involved in the screening process and what community resources and services are available. Webinar panelists include Dr. James Powers, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, and Cheryl Blanchard, Alzheimer’s Tennessee.
