Dr. David Hutchings, Geriatric Neuropathologist

 The Morning Pointe Foundation, together with Dr. David Hutchings, Ph.D., geriatric neuropathologist and leading expert on Alzheimer’s disease, will present “Alzheimer’s, Dementia & Caregiving,” a virtual Caregiver Café seminar and live question and answer period about dementia staging and the importance of assessments to guide care. The program will be a free, registration-only event held online on March 10, 2022, at 6:30 p.m. EST. To register, go to www.morningpointe.com/caregivercafe. The ongoing Morning Pointe Caregiver Café wellness series connects experts on senior living and care with those experiencing the physical and mental effects of aging.

In this seminar, Dr. Hutchings will discuss important aspects of caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, including medication management and addressing challenging behaviors like sundowning. “Alzheimer’s impacts the patient and the entire family,” says Dr. Hutchings. “It is critical to understand the type of dementia, the stage of the dementia and to have a treatment plan to address all the symptoms that accompany the illness.”

The Morning Pointe Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Morning Pointe Senior Living founded by Tennessee-based senior healthcare entrepreneurs Greg A. Vital and J. Franklin Farrow. The 501(c)3 nonprofit public service organization was created in 2014 to provide caregiver support programs, sponsor educational awareness events, and fund clinical scholarships to advance the care of seniors throughout the Southeast. Morning Pointe Senior Living, headquartered in Chattanooga, Tennessee, develops, owns, and manages 36 Morning Pointe personal care and The Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence communities in five southeastern states.

This virtual seminar is presented free-of-charge, but individuals must register at morningpointe.com/caregivercafe to attend or receive the recorded link after the event. “Dr. Hutchings is well-renowned in the field of Alzheimer’s and dementia care, and we are very fortunate to have him partner with Morning Pointe to provide essential caregiving knowledge and advice,” said Amy Clarke, Morning Pointe vice president of branding and strategy. “We look forward to learning about the ways caregivers can address challenging behaviors while still being a loving, compassionate provider of care.”
