Jay Allen dedicates his time and voice for the fight against Alzheimer’s in honor of his mom, Sherry, who passed away in 2019. He travels across the country performing at events and sharing his story to raise awareness and spark conversations about the cause.

The dementia journey can be challenging and confusing, not only for the person living with it, but also for the caregiver. This conference will help you - the caregiver - navigate the journey guided by the latest information on research, treatment, behaviors, financial planning, best care practices and much more. You are not alone in this journey. As innovations in dementia care and science continue to emerge, we are all on our way to "A Better Tomorrow."
