Over 300 people attended our 2016 Statewide Educational Conference. Alzheimer’s professionals, family caregivers and people living with the disease alike enjoyed a variety of speakers and programs providing a wealth of information, insight and resources regarding Alzheimer’s and related dementia.

“One of the most amazing conferences!” said Elizabeth Rennie. “I am still upbeat and I got so much out of listening to the speakers. I can only say that it has helped me tremendously to deal with my husband and to lift my spirits. Thank you.”

Folks heard first hand about the latest dementia research from Doctor Clifford Singer, the pioneering efforts of Paul Raia PhD and Habilitation Therapy, as well as detailed steps in how to help those living with the disease on their own terms through the wisdom of Jolene Brackey and David LaGraffe. 

On top of all that, we were fortunate to have Greg O'Brien, author of “On Pluto: Inside the Mind of Alzheimer’s”. Greg is living with Alzheimer’s and shared this video about the effect the disease has on him and his family; it's one you won't want to miss:
