The Alzheimer’s Association Desert Southwest Chapter has collaborated with Arizona State University (ASU), the Arizona Department of Economic Security (DES) and the Nevada Aging and Disability Services Division to bring you the Care Partners Reaching Out, or CarePRO, program. CarePRO is a series of skill-building workshops for persons caring for loved ones who are coping with dementia such as Alzheimer’s Disease and related disorders.
CarePRO is part of a nationwide effort to provide evidence-based skills to caregivers. David W. Coon, PhD, an ASU professor who is one of the nation’s leading experts on caregiver support, designed the program based on research done at Stanford University.
Respite care for the person with dementia is available so caregivers may attend the sessions without having to worry about leaving their loved ones alone.
Pre-registration and an initial screening process are required for participation.
