(Community Matters 62) Is It Dementia? Holiday Interactions Can Show Signs

Imagine the scenario: Family and friends gather for traditional holiday celebrations. Except, this year, you join relatives you haven't seen in months – and a loved one in attendance seems different. Could they be displaying symptoms of dementia?

Miles for Memories founder Sherii Sherban comes back to Community Matters, saying such a situation isn't uncommon. Holiday gatherings where folks reconnect can be the first time dementia symptoms may present themselves noticeably.

But she also says we can't jump to conclusions.
