Alzheimer's disease "sundowning" topic of lunchtime session tomorrow

Kanah Lewallen, Geriatric Nurse Practitioner with Vanderbilt Senior Care and Vanderbilt University School of Nursing, will be presenting on the challenges of caring for individuals with dementia who have difficult behaviors. This is often referred to as sundowning and is a symptom of Alzheimer’s Disease and other dementias.

This session will provide participants with tools to better care for individuals with these challenging behaviors. There will also be time allowed for Q&A and to discuss individual issues. The event is part of the Boomers, Elders and More lunchtime sessions, and will be held Sept. 20 from noon to 1 p.m. in Light Hall 306AB.
