Caregiving: A Challenging Journey

April 1, 2024 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Headshot of Dr. Dennis Pezzato, PhD. Behavioral Specialist.

Dr. Dennis Pezzato will use his years of experience as a behavioral therapist and caregiver to talk about the challenges, and rewards, that come along with being a care partner for someone with Alzheimer’s.  He will share tips and tricks on common areas of concern related to caregiving and highlight caregiver wellness and health throughout his presentation.

The “Listen and Learn Lihue Library Lecture Series on Alzheimer’s” for 2024 is a monthly educational series featuring a dementia related topic sponsored by the Alzheimer’s Association Aloha Chapter and the Lihue Public Library, in conjunction with the Kauai Agency on Elderly Affairs. This series is partially funded by the OAA National Family Caregiver Support Program and will bring local professionals together to educate the community on dementia related issues to help in the diagnosis of, and treatment and care for, individuals with dementia.
