The Alzheimer’s Association, Southeastern Wisconsin created the Workplace Education Program to help businesses of all types and sizes address the growing challenges posed by Alzheimer’s disease and other chronic conditions causing individuals to need care.
The following presentations are typically one hour long, however, program lengths can be adjusted to meet specific needs. In order for a program to be most successful, we recommend presentations of an hour or longer.
