2017 Alzheimer's Association African Americas Caregiver Seminar

Date:  Saturday, February 18, 2017

Time:  9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. (check in begins at 8:30 a.m.

Many Americans dismiss the warning signs of Alzheimer's believing that these symptoms are a normal part of aging. This is of even greater concern for African-Americans, who are two times more likely to develop late-onset Alzheimer's disease than whites and are less likely to have a diagnosis of their condition, resulting in less time for treatment and planning.  This seminar will discuss community resources available to caregivers, as well as offer helpful tips for managing daily challenges and ways to relieve some of the stress associated with caregiving.  On-site respite care is also available at no charge with advance registration.
