Black Parents Aging Podcast

Jan 21, 2021

Caring for an aging parent is a complex task. When dementia care is part of the picture, it becomes a lot more difficult. . Cognitive and behavioral changes from dementia can occur unpredictably, and parents may resist care.


If you are a caregiver for an aging parent with dementia, the first step is to understand the disease and some of the changes it causes. This is why in today’s episode, Nicola speaks to Dr. Fayron Epps, a nurse who has found her mission to educate African Americans on dementia and empower their church families who support them. Join Nicola and Dr. Epps as they speak about how to better equip ourselves with the knowledge of dementia, the importance of early detection, and how that helps improve the quality of life of anyone living with dementia. 


Tune in to learn:


  • The difference between Alzheimer’s disease and dementia
  • How to tell whether the forgetfulness of your aging parents is due to aging or dementia
  • How to creatively bring up the conversations about this sensitive topic with your parents
  • How to ease our own fear of finding out that a parent has dementia 
  • and so much more!
