This workshop is in conjunction with the documentary Revolutionizing Dementia Care, the latest film in our Public Television documentary series. The documentary reveals how people living with dementia can live a full and meaningful life based on their abilities, not their disabilities. Interviews with care partners, medical professionals and persons living with dementia are combined with first-hand looks at innovative approaches in memory care communities across the country.

Watch Revolutionizing Dementia Care November 15, 2018 at 9:00 p.m. on WCVE PBS, WVPT PBS and WHTJ PBS or watch the Live Stream on the night of the broadcast.
