    Dementia affects 24 to 47 million people globally, including five million Americans.  Dementia of the Alzheimer’s type represents 60-80% of those affected. One out of three seniors in the USA will develop dementia preceding death, rendering a sensitive time for the patient and their families even more difficult. While scientists are working vigorously to find a cure, new understandings of brain and body complexity have led to a number of discoveries for preventing and mitigating the effects of dementia.
    This talk by Dr. Keith Rapp will focus on a wide range of matters concerned with dementia including the different types, current medical therapies, rates of progression and adjunct approaches. Citing the most current literature, Dr. Rapp will discuss how to minimize or mitigate the occurrence of dementia and improve the quality of life for those affected. He’ll expand the topic to include how to deal with the vast economic impact that affects individuals, families and society when it comes to caring for dementia sufferers.
    Dr. Rapp is a nationally recognized physician with more than 35 years of experience, nearly 30 years devoted exclusively to post-acute and long-term care. He is the founder and was Chief Executive Officer of Geriatric Associates of America, P.A., a group of physicians and advanced practice registered nurses that provided medical care, advanced practice nursing services and medical direction for nursing facilities across the nation.
