Live chat with expert: Molly Carpenter

Join expert Molly Carpenter & host Lakelyn Hogan of Home Instead Senior Care® as we talk about the person-centered care approach for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease & other forms of dementia.

Person-centered care takes into account all aspects of an individual’s life that can impact well-being, not just the disease and associated symptoms. It considers a person’s environment, social connections, beliefs and values, and more.
