NHS HAZAK presents

Age-Related Cognitive Loss
With
Dr. Timothy Sigward, Ph.D.

Wednesday, May 21,2014
12 noon

NHS HaZak hosted a lunch buffet and fascinating program about age-related cognitive loss often experienced by senior adults. Dr. Timothy Sigward, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist at the Centers for Interactive Geriatric Assessment, explained the differences between normal, mild memory loss and the severe dementia caused by disorders like Altzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, etc. He presented a slide show illustrating what is dementia, different levels of cognitive impairment, dementia syndromes, and risk factors.

We learned that there are differences between vascular dementia (like stroke) and Alzheimer's disease, and that neuropsychological testing is essential in order to get the correct treatment.
