Webinar Registration

Social isolation negatively impacts the millions of people living with dementia and their care partners in the U.S. These individuals are generally more satisfied when they have emotional and social support. In this webinar, the presenters will discuss:

  • The importance of emotional and social support.
  • Why support may “dry up” after diagnosis.
  • Why people living with dementia and their care partners may self-isolate.
  • Ideas for families to foster support.

The webinar will be recorded and available at nadrc.acl.gov. Please direct any questions to Sari Shuman at sshuman@rti.org.
