Holidays for Westfield Seniors with Alzheimer’s

Westfield Seniors with Alzheimer's: How to Make the Holidays Enjoyable

November was Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, and much was talked about with Westfield seniors. BrightStar Care’s very own dementia care expert and Chief Clinical Quality Officer Sharon Roth Maguire, MS, RN, GNP-BC, and care expert Deborah Hustace, RN, MBA, Senior Director of Clinical Operations, hosted an engaging Facebook Live Chat on the topic of how to make the holidays safe and special for Westfield senior loved ones living with Alzheimer's or Dementia.

Throughout the discussion, viewers submitted their questions for Sharon and Deborah to answer. Topics included traveling with a Westfield elderly loved one, medication management, family traditions, gift giving, and more. If you missed this informative live chat, you can watch it here now.
