This interactive workshop provides information about the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia, causes and risk factors, how Alzheimer’s affects the brain, how to get a thorough diagnosis, the stages of the disease and treatments that can help.


Legal/Financial
For people living with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease in their families, planning for the future needs to be done as early in the disease process as possible. Learn what legal and financial issues to consider, what programs are available to help, and how to put plans in place.


Living with Alzheimer’s: for People with Alzheimer’s disease
The diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease is life-changing and leads to many questions about how to plan and cope. What will this mean for me and my family? How do I plan for the future? Where can I get the help I need? This is an opportunity to hear from others who have been where you are now and to learn what you need to know and plan as you take steps to navigate this chapter of your life.

Hear helpful strategies to provide safe, effective and comfortable care in the middle stage of Alzheimer’s.


Living with Alzheimer’s for Caregivers: Late Stage
The late stage of Alzheimer’s may involve significant changes in how the person with the disease is cared for. Caregiving typically involves new ways of connecting and interacting. You’ll hear from caregivers and professionals about resources, monitoring care and providing meaningful connection to ease the transitions that come with the late stage of the disease.


Living with Alzheimer’s: Younger Onset
When someone under 65 is diagnosed with Younger-Onset Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia, the first reaction is often shock or denial. This doesn’t happen to someone so young…does it? What does the diagnosis mean? What kinds of plans need to be made for everyone? What about work? What resources are available to help? Hear how others with Younger-Onset Alzheimer’s are dealing with work and family issues, learn what you need to know, what you need to plan, and what you can do to ease the impact throughout the course of the disease.


Kids and Teens
