Available in-person and online, our education programs feature information on topics including the signs of Alzheimer's disease, diagnosis, communication, living with Alzheimer's and caregiving techniques.
The overarching goal for all education programs is to improve quality of life for people with any type of dementia. Attendees leave knowing more about the disease, signs to look for, what to expect, and with proven strategies to help families cope and provide quality care. Participants also learn about brain health and how to live a brain-healthy lifestyle.
