Summary

Duet's Meaning & Hope Institute is proud to present A Conversation with Dr. Reyes: Bridging the Gap - Caring for Caregivers.

Join Duet’s Meaning & Hope Institute for an important conversation with Dr. Patricio F. Reyes, M.D., Chief of Neurology and Director of Alzheimer’s Disease & Cognitive Disorders and Traumatic Brain Injury at the Carl T. Hayden VA Medical Center in Phoenix. Dr. Reyes has seen, first-hand, the toll that tending to someone with dementia can take on a family caregiver. Early on in his practice, three caregivers of his patients suffered heart attacks. Their health crises made him realize that vigilance for them is as important as attention to their afflicted loved ones. He vows, “Each passing day I shall strive to offer the best care I can to persons with dementia AND their caregivers.” Dr. Reyes will provide caregivers with medical education to help ease and overcome some of the many life-changing challenges of providing care to their loved ones.

Time:         3 – 4:30 p.m. (Arizona/MST)

Location:   Virtual (Zoom)

Cost:          Free of charge
