My Mom Isn't Like this Webinar

Hope you can join us today - Wednesday October 19th, 2016 at Noon CST for our Lunch and Learn Webinar Series for those who may be caring for a loved one or parent.
Today's topic is: “My mom isn’t this way when she is home!: Is it dementia, delirium or denial?”
A hospitalization or infection can change everything. What is dementia and what is normal aging?  Trisha Menoni from Partners in Senior Care will provide insight to help you determine if it’s dementia, delirium or if you may be in denial.

Memory and Aging Presentation at Mundelein Senior Center

Today, our founder and owner, Trisha Menoni, RN, BSN, CMC, gave a talk at the Mundelein Senior Center on Memory and Aging. Here are the highlights:

Home Care in Lake County: Caregiver Training & Orientation
