Dementia Care Consortium (DCC)

At the DCC quarterly meetings, professionals in the dementia care field have the opportunity to network with one another, visit and tour a dementia facility or other center, and learn from expert presenters on dementia-related topics.

As a member of the DCC, you will receive free admittance to each of the meetings (with breakfast provided), as well as notifications about additional events, conferences, and sponsorship and marketing opportunities.

One Category I social work continuing education credit is offered at each meeting.

We have three DCC groups! They meet in the areas of BaltimoreFrederick and Hagerstown.
