For people with cognitive decline and their families, getting a proper diagnosis from a trusted doctor can be difficult.

Learn about how Alzheimer’s and other neurocognitive disorders are diagnosed during an upcoming webinar, “Alzheimer’s and Dementia Diagnosis in the Aging Population,” on Thursday, June 3 at 1 p.m.

The Bristal Assisted Living and Burner Law Group, PC, will present the webinar on Zoom, where Dr. Nicole Absar, a neuropsychiatrist with The Center of Excellence for Alzheimer’s Disease at Stony Brook Medicine, will discuss treatment options, care services, and the importance of pro-active planning.

She completed her residency in psychiatry at Tufts University Medical School and holds a certification in behavioral neurology and neuropsychiatry from the United Council for Neurologic Subspecialties. She is also a diplomate in behavioral neurology and neuropsychiatry and a fellow at the American Psychiatric Association. 

Julie Wexler, of The Bristal Assisted Living, and Britt Burner, Esq., of Burner Law Group, PC., will also join the conversation. Wexler has spent her career of more than 25 years in elder care settings, and Burner has been named a Rising Star Attorney, focusing on elder law and estate planning.
