Knowledge can be empowering. The Alzheimer's Association offers many education programs designed to help the person with dementia, family members and professional care providers gain the knowledge and skills needed to enhance quality of life.

For upcoming events in your area, visit the Calendar of education programs. 

Caregiver Seminars

The Alzheimer's Association understands that Alzheimer's care begins with the caregivers--whether family member or professional, at home or in a care facility--and offers several excellent opportunities for those who care for people with dementia to receive education and training. Alzheimer's Association Caregiver Seminars help family members and health care professionals better understand the challenges of caring for someone with dementia and give caregivers the tools to put basic dementia care concepts into practice and solve common problems.   

Programs to look forward to in 2016 are the African American Caregiver Seminar in Fort Worth on Saturday, February 20, and the Waco Caregiver Seminar on Friday, February 26. In May, Betsy Broyles Arnold and her daughter, Molly Arnold Gay, return to Texas to coach caregivers in the basics of Alzheimer's care. The Abilene Caregiver Seminar is May 5, and the Wichita Falls Caregiver Seminar is on May 6.

Mapping the Journey, a four part introduction to caring for someone with dementia, begins on Wednesday, April 6, 2016.

The Alzheimer's Association Spring Symposium is the area’s premier source for up to date, relevant information about Alzheimer’s disease and related forms of dementia. The event features a full day of presentations by professionals whose expertise bears on practical and legal concerns related to dementia care. Attendees also have the opportunity to meet with representatives from over 40 businesses and non-profit organizations who provide services for families and professionals who care for someone with dementia.

Professional Training for special dementia care programs for healthcare providers.

Support Groups to learn from peers who are facing similar issues.
