Dr. Tia Powell, Director of the Montefiore Einstein Center For Bioethics and author of the recently released book “Dementia Reimagined: Building a Life of Joy and Dignity from Beginning to End,” will deliver The New Jewish Home’s 20th Annual Stein Lecture on Dementia on Thursday, May 30, at the organization’s Westchester Campus, Sarah Neuman.
The Stein Lecture on Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease is an annual event for healthcare professionals and the general public that brings prominent experts in the field to The New Jewish Home's Westchester campus to share their expertise in various aspects of dementia and Alzheimer's disease. The New Jewish Home is a comprehensive, mission-driven health care system serving older New Yorkers since 1848.
Dr. Powell will discuss why focusing on care for people with dementia and Alzheimer’s is just as, if not more, important than focusing on finding a cure; and what caregivers can do for those who have dementia to keep life meaningful and joyful. The audience will also learn the cultural and medical history of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
Dr. Powell’s book, “Dementia Reimagined: Building a Life of Joy and Dignity from Beginning to End,” will be available for purchase at the event. Dr. Powell will be on hand to sign copies of her book after the lecture.
One CEU credit will be offered to social workers who attend this event.
