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 the quality of life for all affected.
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.
The highlights of the season are the Caregivers Seminars in Waco and Wichita Falls for family and professional caregivers, and Mapping the Journey, a four-part program that covers everything a family member needs to know about caring for someone with Alzheimer's.
