The Basics: Memory Loss, Dementia, and Alzheimer's Disease
The Basics is a program designed to educate attendees about the difference between normal memory loss and Alzheimer’s disease. Risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease, the diagnostic process, and the changes that the brain goes through as Alzheimer’s progresses are just some of the topics covered in the program. The program also features video clips of doctors, patients and loved one who are caring for people with Alzheimer’s disease.

Know the 10 Warning Signs
Know the 10 Warning Signs is an introductory program that provides attendees with an understanding of the difference between age-related memory loss and Alzheimer’s and what to do if they or someone they know has signs of the disease. Attendees will view video footage of real people who are living with the early stages of dementia and their families addressing fears and myths associated with Alzheimer’s Disease.

Conversations About Dementia
When someone is showing signs of dementia, it’s time to talk. This program is designed to help you talk with your entire family, including the person with signs of dementia, about some challenging and often uncomfortable topics related to Alzheimer’s and dementia. Topics covered include going to the doctor, deciding when to stop driving and making legal and financial plans.

Living with Alzheimer's: For People with Alzheimer's
The diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease is life-changing and leads to many questions. What does this mean for me and my family? How do I plan for the future? Where can I get the help I need? This program is an interactive three-part program where you will have a chance to hear from others who have been where you are. We will discuss what you need to know, what you need to plan, and what you can do to navigate this chapter of your life. This program will cover information for people with a diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia who are in the early stage of the disease.

Living with Alzheimer's: For Younger-Onset Alzheimer's
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? This program is designed to provide answers. Hear from those directly affected and 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.

Living with Alzheimer's: For Early-Stage Caregivers
The early-stage program is a series of three programs that describes the symptoms of the early-stage of Alzheimer's disease, explains the legal, financial, and resource planning that needs to be done, and explains the various components of a care team and how to successfully work with each component during the early-stage of the disease.

Living with Alzheimer's: For Middle-Stage Caregivers
During the three part middle-stage program, caregivers will learn the symptoms and care needs associated with the middle-stage of Alzheimer's and learn about the relationship changes that occur in the middle-stage. Ways to maximize safety, prepare for emergencies, and access respite care will be discussed as well as effective ways to provide personal care and manage challenging behaviors.

Living with Alzheimer's: For Late-Stage Caregivers
The late-stage section of the series is two parts. Caregivers will learn the concept of the self in the late-stage of Alzheimer's disease as well as learn effective ways to communicate, connect with, and provide daily care in the late-stage. The program will also cover late-stage care options and explain how to access and evaluate them. 

Legal and Financial Planning for the Future
A diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease can change plans that families have for the future. This program will cover important legal and financial information to consider as the disease progresses and plans are made for the future.

Speaker's Bureau
Alzheimer's Association representatives are available to offer a variety of different presentations and programs that can help educate caregivers about what services are available to them or about the disease. Our presentations and programs range from 30 minutes to 2 hours depending on your needs. At no cost, they would come and talk to your group. For more information, please call 800.272.3900.
