The Many Faces of Dementia

Dr. Ronald Hamdy, MD, FRCP, FACP is a Geriatric Medicine Specialist in Johnson City, TN. Dementia care has always been one of his key areas of interest. Dr. Hamdy has published four medical books as well as caregiving resources, working to bring dementia education to his peers and the community as a whole.  Dr. Hamdy provides a wealth of practical information about the effects of Alzheimer's disease and other types of dementia, offers detailed descriptions of the stages of the disease, the options for treatment, and the effects of other mental and physical characteristics upon the expressions of dementia.

Living in the Moment:  Purpose, Presence, Perspective

Karen Stobbe has a passion for teaching innovative and successful caregiving strategies to help individuals with dementia live in the moment. She is co-developer of the “Hand in Hand” video that was produced by CMS and is distributed to every nursing facility in the country. Her Father and Mother are her inspirations for so desperately wanting to educate the world by bringing her unique perspective to the audience.
