Educational Conferences

Caregivers and family members who have loved one's with Alzheimer's disease or other dementia, professional caregivers, and those in the community, are welcome to attend any of our chapter conferences. Often times continuing education credits and contact hours are available for professionals. We also provide educational opportunities for those with early-stage dementia. All conferences are an educational opportunity and provide the latest knowledge, treatment options, and research on a variety of topics related to dementia.

Jolene Brackey began her career as an interior designer after graduating from Iowa State University. But she soon realized that she derived great joy from helping people improve the interiors of their lives, rather than their homes. When she left her interior design job, the first job available was in an Alzheimer’ special care unit as an activity director. She didn’t know what Alzheimer’s was but she knew she liked older people. Before long, she realized that God had given her a gift. She found ways to create positive outcomes and moments of joy for the individuals with the disease, their loved ones, and professional caregivers.

Eager to share her practical solutions and insights, Jolene began speaking at educational seminars. Her message of hope, encouragement-along with generous helpings of humor-was warmly embraced by family members and professional caregivers alike. So, she established a business, Enhanced Moments, to help guide people through the Alzheimer’s journey.



Family Member / Caregiver - $15
Professionals (includes CEUs) - $50
