On February 17th, the Avila Institute and the NRRO co-sponsored another successful webinar titled “Interacting with Religious Members with Memory Impairment.” The webinar presenter, Alfred Norwood, is a behavior specialist who uses applied behavior analysis combined with current neuropsychology to resolve behaviors in community and institutional based seniors with cognitive and memory deficits.
Mr. Norwood gave an in-depth, understandable explanation of how the brain develops and functions in relation to understanding dementia behaviors. The webinar was very well received by the viewers through the feedback on the webinar evaluations. We received several comments on how the information given is extremely important and useful.

The Avila Institute partners with the National Religious Retirement Office (NRRO) to provide webinars on long-term care and aging topics that are relevant to our aging religious communities.
