Beyond P.I.E.C.E.S. and GPA: The Meaning of Behaviours in Persons with Dementia (PwD)

On May 22nd, 2019, I will be presenting in Fergus, ON, Canada. You can purchase tickets to attend at

During this presentation, I will talk about how dementia can impair the different circuit systems of the brain, and how these impairments can translate into the behaviors we see from PwD. I will discuss 12 different behavioral categories, and the ‘meaning’ and the ‘purpose’ of the behaviors relating to these categories.
