Communicating About Alzheimer’s and Related Dementias (HLOL #193)

by | Dec 1, 2019

Katrien Goethals is Partner at the Institute for the Advancement of Health and Wellbeing: Dementia/Alzheimer’s. She lectures on dementia, facilitates groups for caregivers, and moderates a podcast that is part of a larger project to examine Alzheimer’s and Dementia from a public policy, public relations, and advocacy perspective. In all this work, Goethals brings her perspective as a family member and caregiver and world view from growing up in Belgium.

In this podcast, Helen Osborne talks with Katrien Goethals about:

  • Dementia, a cognitive impairment decline that affects mental functioning. There are many types of dementia that can affect people of all ages.
  • Dementia is a looming, yet under-recognized, public health crisis worldwide. Yet there is no definitive way to prevent or treat dementia.
  • How listeners can help raise awareness, educate, and advocate. Examples from many perspectives including public health, clinical settings, and as family members, caregivers, and friends.
