EDISON – One of the most difficult stages in dementia care is coping with the physical, emotional and cognitive changes and challenges that occur during the end-stage of life.
On Wednesday, April 10, the EARS (Educate, Advocate, Reduce Stress) for Caregivers Program will present “Understanding Hospice and End-of-Life Care for Persons with Dementia,” a program featuring Tracy Grafton, LSW, of Haven Hospice.
