In our time together, we will look at clinical cases addressing:
What are the basic ethical and legal principles relevant to dementia care?
How do we preserve the rights of patients with dementia?
What are the key issues in completing advance directives?
How has the COVID-19 pandemic complicated decision-making in caring for patients with dementia?
Who Should Attend:

Dr. Keyes is co-director of The Christ Hospital Health & Aging Center. He is board-certified in both internal medicine and geriatrics. He is passionate about helping elderly patients cope with age-related health conditions.

"The Center for Health and Aging relies on a model of care that takes a proactive approach to disease management of the older adult," explains Dr. Keyes. "By anticipating complications that might arise in the early course of a disease, we hope to avoid hospitalization or placement in a nursing home."
