Why Attend The New England Conference for Dementia Care Professionals?

For decades, A Map Through the Maze and the Connecticut Dementia Education Conference have taught professionals the best practices and most cutting-edge research related to Alzheimer’s and dementia. Now, these two conferences have combined into the New England Conference for Dementia Care Professionals. We emphasize practical, concrete recommendations that you can take back to any care setting.
