The Theory of Retrogenesis suggests that the brains of people with Alzheimer’s deteriorate functionally and cognitively in the reverse order of how their brains developed from birth. Building on that, The Theory of Retrogenesis allows us to go into the world of someone afflicted with Alzheimer’s and understand their realities providing a framework for more positive interactions to minimize resistance and aggression while approaching challenging behaviors.

Join us for the presentation presented by guest speaker Julie P. Kollada, CDP, Franciscan Care Solutions Managing Partner. Followed by Dinner.

Seating is limited. RSVP by July 26. Contact 630-243-3479 or
