MEMIC Safety Experts Podcast
Episode #22 | Published June 22, 2020
Dementia is a disease that can strip away the very essence of who a friend or loved one once was. It ravages the mind, while, in many cases, leaving the body alone until late in the disease timeline. Understanding the signs that accompany the disease, especially those in the later stages, will help improve quality of life, end of life choices, and the relationships of the people it affects. On this Episode of the MEMIC Safety Experts Podcast, I talk with Dr. Heather McKay, manager of Partnerships for Health in Hillsborough, North Carolina. Together, we delve into the late stages of Dementia and how caregivers and loved ones can make sense of the disease’s effects and be better prepared for end of life choices.
