Veterans Day is a time to commemorate those who have served their country. Many who experienced combat have traumatic brain injury (TBI) and long-term psychological effects such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). These veterans are now older adults, and some have developed dementia. This event will share vital information on, resources, services and non-pharmacological approaches that offers the level of support our veterans so very much deserve.
From this event you will be able to:
1. Name essential resources and services for veterans
2. Define non-pharmacological interventions to support veterans and those experiencing traumatic memories
3. Explain the impact of chronic stress, TBI, and PTSD on brain health
4. Develop a foundational understanding of emotional memories for those living with dementia
5. Describe the bi-directional relationship between PTSD and dementia.
