Silverado Medical Director Live Chat Event
Normal Aging vs. Dementia Related Cognitive Decline
On Wednesday, November 19 from 10:00am to 11:00am PST, families affected by dementia will have an opportunity to ask questions about the disease directly to a physician. In association with Elder Care Chat and SeniorsforLiving.com, Silverado Newport Mesa's Medical Director Dr. Jason Abney will live chat to discuss the differences between normal age-related memory loss and early-stage Alzheimer’s.
Anyone can participate in the live tweet session by submitting questions via Twitter to @ElderCareChat and include #ElderCareChat. Those who wish to participate should also follow Silverado at @SilveradoCare.
