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 opportunities.

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

We have three DCC groups:
