Our Arbor dementia expert, Susan Robbins, sits down with Melissa Lee to discuss the topic of the upcoming webinar Senior Living LIVE: Dementia or Normal Aging? As a preview for the full webinar, scheduled for September 29, Susan compares dementia and forgetfulness, and gives some signs to look for and when to see medical help.
