  • Dr. Gary ChapmanKeeping Love Alive as Memories Fade (based on the The 5 Love Languages and Alzheimer's Disease)
    5.5 million individuals in the US have Alzheimer’s Disease (AD), with a new case being diagnosed every 66 seconds. This involves over 15 million caregivers, usually spouses, and adult children. How do we help the patient and the caregiver?  What is to be expected in the early, middle, and late stages of AD?  Meeting the emotional need for love can sometimes feel impossible.  Yet, research indicates that as the cognitive abilities fade, the patient can still experience emotional love.  Understanding the five love languages motivates and empowers the caregiver.  This lecture is based on the research and experience of Ed Shaw, MD, Gary Chapman, Ph.D. and Debbie Barr, MA.  Dr. Shaw founded the Memory Counseling Program at Wake Forest Baptist Health in Winston-Salem, NC

  • Kay Van NormanVitality Portfolio

    Adults over 55 consistently list ensuring financial security and retaining independence as their top two concerns about aging. Many people consider the financial assets required for a lifetime but how many have given thoughtful consideration to what vitality assets they need to maintain health and independence? This session outlines the Vitality Portfolio® strategy to help individuals evaluate vitality status, assess risks, balance assets, and create a plan for lifelong health and independence.
