Alzheimer’s Association New England Family Conference

Join us for a free, virtual conference for those living with Alzheimer's and dementia and their families. Sessions will feature notable guest speakers and include a panel of persons living with early stage dementia. Topics include tips and strategies to living well with cognitive changes, use of expressive therapies and mindfulness practice to live well, a caregiver panel, how to reduce hesitancy to care, and creating a healthy and safe environment for living with dementia.

NEW this year, we will be offering live, simultaneous Spanish interpretation during the conference using Zoom's built-in interpretation feature. Attendees can click the globe-shaped "Interpretation" icon in Zoom during the conference to select Spanish and hear the interpretation.
