New This Year

*The Dementia Experience: Have you ever wondered what the world is like for people with dementia? Join us for a 20 minute interactive experience to simulate changes associated with dementia and aging. By briefly walking in your loved one’s shoes, you may gain insight into ways to make them more comfortable.

Ask the Expert: An Alzheimer’s Association staff member will lead a group discussion to help you get all of your questions answered and learn about resources to help as new questions arise.

*Indicates that a program or topic may not be appropriate for people with dementia.

NOTE: You do not have to attend the entire conference in order to register. You are welcome to join us for the entire day or just part of the day. For more information call 800.272.3900.
