Dementia: The Lived Experience

Juliet Holt Klinger, MA, Senior Director of Dementia Care
Michael Belleville, Dementia Advocate
Cheryl Belleville, Dementia Advocate and Care Partner

Dementia: The Lived Experience will explore the experience of living with dementia firsthand
and from the “true experts” in dementia care — someone diagnosed with the disease and his
care partner. We will explore the journey from receiving a diagnosis to developing a plan of care
and support that leads to a life well lived. We will discuss strategies to maximize independence,
maintain a sense of identity and plan for the future. Our presenters will describe quality care
from the perspective of someone living in the early stage and their care partner and will offer
insights on how care providers can support efforts to live well for as long as possible.
Following this presentation the participant will be able to:

• Explore the evidence related to care and support challenges faced by persons living
with dementia and their care partners
• Gain a better understanding of individuals living with dementia
• Define what quality of care and support is through the eyes of someone living
with dementia
• Understand how to support independence and identity for people living with dementia

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Thank you,

Melissa Hill & Alex Holtsclaw
