As a caregiver, dealing with someone experiencing dementia can be challenging.

The Eastern Michigan University Aging Studies program is bringing in a special speaker and offering a wellness fair this week to share information and tools for dealing with the aging process.

WEMU's Lisa Barry talks with the director of the EMU program, Dr. Cassandra Barragan, and student Christine Moellering about challenges and solutions to dementia and overall aging.
