Caregiver SeminarsAlzheimer's Association Caregiver Seminars help family members and health care professionals better understand the changes occurring in the brain of someone with dementia as a path toward becoming more effective caregivers. In lively and informative sessions, professional dementia care trainers give caregivers the tools to put basic dementia care concepts into practice and solve common problems. Family caregivers attend for no charge; health care professionals may earn continuing education credits for a nominal fee.
