“Our Aging Brain”
Presentation by Susan McCombs, PHD,LISW-CP June 12, 2023
Staying Connected sponsored an outstanding presentation by Susan McCombs to explain how cognitive health and mental health can affect seniors. Susan is a licensed professional and is a Sun City resident. She presented to a full house of seniors who learned about what natural changes take place in our brain as we age, the difference between “normal” and “abnormal” loss of memory and brain function, and when to seek a medical assessment. For those who were not able to attend, you can view her presentation by clicking on the video link below. You can also access this video and other informational videos under our Resource Hub tab, Presentations / Training Videos.
