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.
