Townhall: John Zeisel: A New Philosophy of Alzheimer’s Care

As many as 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease, and for two decades, John Zeisel has been developing ways to improve their quality of life—as well as showing ways for caregivers to more deeply connect with them. The author of I’m Still Here(the seminal book on dementia) embraces holistic treatment and emphasizes the abilities that don’t diminish with the disease—understanding music, art, facial expressions, and touch. He also frames Alzheimer’s as a case warranting the care of a “village,” sharing strategies on creating a Seattle program to reduce the stigma of dementia and help those with it live active, engaged lives. Presented as part of the Health thread of The Seattle Science Lectures by Town Hall; the Frye Art Museum; the Alzheimer’s Association, Western and Central Washington State Chapter; and University Book Store, and sponsored by Microsoft. Series media sponsorship provided by KPLU.

Advance tickets are $5 at www.townhallseattle.org or 888/[masked] and at the door beginning at 5:30 pm. Downstairs at Town Hall; enter on Seneca Street.
