What’s So Super
About SuperAging?

What’s So Super About SuperAging?

On average memory abilities decline with aging. However, there are some individuals, we call SuperAgers, who seem to resist age related changes in memory. For more than 10 years, Emily Rogalski, PhD has been leading the Northwestern SuperAging Research Program, which has a goal of identifying genetic, biologic, and psychosocial factors that contribute to living long and living well. At this presentation, she will highlight Northwestern’s contributions to research in this area and its relevance for healthy aging and Alzheimer's disease.

Connecting Through Communication for Families
and Friends of Persons with Dementia

A diagnosis of dementia shouldn’t mean the diminishment of your relationship with those you love. Learning new ways to communicate can help to deepen your connection and create positive engagement. In this talk with Dr. Angela Roberts, participants will learn:

• How cognitive changes affect conversation and social communication.
• The importance of communication as a form of connecting with persons who have cognitive impairment/dementia.
• Strategies for creating and maintaining connections through engaging activities and effective/meaningful conversations with persons who have dementia.

The focus of the talk is to support family members and community volunteers in supporting persons with dementia through ‘friendly visit’ programs, social engagement and acceptance.
