Medical and physical health problems are often the focus of care for an aging adult. However, it is often the psychosocial issues, such as mental health problems, relationship and family discord, and the burden on spousal and family caregivers that are among the most challenging to healthcare providers of seniors and those living with dementia. In this Summit session, you will learn about the spectrum of mental health issues ranging from changes in emotional expression to depression and anxiety, stress, and PTSD. Understanding the needs of spousal and family caregivers, including caregiver wellness, will also be addressed. Healthcare professionals of all types will feel more knowledgeable and better prepared to work with seniors and those with dementia who are psychosocially challenged.

Edward G. Shaw, MD, MA is dually trained as a physician and mental health counselor. He was the primary care partner for his late wife, Rebecca, who was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease in 2007 at age 53 and died in 2016 after a 9-year journey. Ed was a practicing academic radiation oncologist for 23 years, specializing in the treatment of adults and children with brain cancer. In 2010, inspired by Rebecca’s journey, his medical interest shifted to dementia diagnosis and treatment, and with his addition training in mental health counseling, he founded the Memory Counseling Program in 2011, part of the Section on Gerontology and Geriatric Medicine and the Sticht Center on Healthy Aging and Alzheimer’s Prevention at Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. The program serves individuals, couples, and families affected by Alzheimer’s disease or another type of dementia.
He is the author of four books. Along with coauthors Deborah Barr and Dr. Gary Chapman, he wrote Keeping Love Alive as Memories Fade: The 5 Love Languages and the Alzheimer’s Journey, which describes his moving personal story of care for Rebecca coupled with an innovative use of the 5 love languages in dementia counseling. He also wrote The Dementia Care Partner’s Workbook, a support group manual and self-study guide for dementia care partners, providing understanding, education, and hope for the long journey of dementia caregiving from diagnosis through end-of-life. He has also co-authored two resources for support group leaders, A Leader’s Manual for Dementia Care Partner Support Groups and A Support Group for People Living with Dementia: The Leaders Manual.
