The Longest Loss: Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia, Hospice Foundation of America’s annual national Living With Grief® program

When 
Tuesday 8:30 am to 12:30 pm
Where 
Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine | 2 Riverside Circle, Roanoke, VA 24016

When the diagnosis is Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia, grief doesn’t wait for death. Grieving can begin in the doctor’s office when patients and families receive confirmation of illness. Over a span of what may be a decade, multiple losses associated with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia become a pervasive part of everyday life for millions of patients, their families and friends. After the death, survivors’ grief may be complicated by the nature of a lengthy disease process that has changed their relationship with the deceased. Through a combination of candid, compelling interviews and live, in-studio discussion, experts will identify how medical and social service professionals can best help patients, families and themselves cope with loss and grief associated with these progressive illnesses. For full program details, see HFA’s website at www.hospicefoundation.org.

This program is offered free of charge. Drinks and food will be provided. Complimentary parking is available in the campus parking garage.

Hosted in our community by:
