Guests: Anne Sadowska, occupational therapist, and Laura Hurd, speech-language pathologist

Alzheimer’s and related dementia can’t be cured or reverse, but interventions like occupational and speech therapy may help people maintain their physical and mental abilities – and their independence. Host Lisa Wells of the Aging and Disability Resource Center of Eau Claire County chats with two Chippewa Valley professionals – Anne Sadowska, an occupational therapist, and Laura Hurd, a speech-language pathologist – about the sometimes surprising ways their fields can help those living with dementia lead meaningful lives.
