Our memories help us navigate the world around us, but more importantly, they tell us who we are, where we have been, and how we have lived. Losing those memories can be a sign of more than just the occasional forgetfulness and can have a profound impact on individuals, their families, and entire communities.
Join researcher Lorraine Venturato in this webinar as she explores aspects of memory and healthy brain aging, when occasional forgetfulness might be something more serious, key features of dementia and social aspects of care and living with dementia.
