The challenges of caring for a loved one with dementia or other illnesses can be over-whelming and stressful. While stress is an essential component of life – it helps keeps us safe – it can also put our bodies and brains into fight-or-flight mode. Stress activation has a profound impact on brain performance in the short run and damages the brain in the long run. Dr. Sherrie All will describe the effects of chronic stress on the brain and provide valuable strategies for regaining focus and reducing the negative impact of stress, leading to resilience, clarity and calmness.
