Know the 10 Signs
If you or someone you know is experiencing memory loss or behavioral changes, it’s time to learn the facts. Early detection of Alzheimer’s disease gives you a chance to begin drug therapy, enroll in clinical studies and plan for the future. This interactive workshop features video clips of people with Alzheimer’s disease.

The Basics: Memory Loss, Dementia and Alzheimer's Disease
Alzheimer’s disease is not a normal part of aging.  If you or someone you know is affected by Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, it’s time to learn the facts. This program provides information on detection, causes and risk factors, stages of the disease, treatment and much more.

Understanding and Responding to Dementia-Related Behavior
Behavior is  a powerful form of communication and is one of the primary ways for people with dementia to communicate their needs and feelings as the ability to use language is lost. However, some behaviors can present real challenges for caregivers to manage. Join us to learn to decode behavioral messages, identify common behavior triggers, and learn strategies to help intervene with some of the most common behavioral challenges of Alzheimer’s disease.

Initiating Dementia Conversations
When someone is showing signs of dementia, it’s time to talk.  Often, conversations with family about dementia and changing behaviors can be challenging and uncomfortable.  Common difficult conversations are about going to the doctor; deciding when to stop driving; making legal and financial plans. Here are some tips for breaking the ice with your family so you can reduce the stress that accompanies the disease and get the support you and your family need.

Effective Communication Strategies
Communication is more than just talking and listening – it’s also about sending and receiving messages through attitude, tone of voice, facial expressions and body language.  Join us to explore how communication takes place when someone has Alzheimer’s, learn to decode the verbal and behavioral messages delivered by someone with dementia, and identify strategies to help you connect and communicate at each stage of the disease.

Healthy Living for Your Brain and Body
For centuries, we’ve known that the health of the brain and the body are connected. But now, science is able to provide insights into how to make lifestyle choices that may help you keep your brain and body healthy as you age. Join us to learn about research in the areas of diet and nutrition, exercise, cognitive activity and social engagement, and use hands-on-tools to help you incorporate these recommendations. into a plan for healthy aging.

Living with Alzheimer's for Early-Stage Caregivers
In the early stage of Alzheimer’s disease, families face new questions as they adjust. What does the diagnosis mean? What kinds of plans need to be made? What resources are available to help? Join us for this 3-part series to hear practical answers to the questions that arise in the early stage. Hear from those directly affected and learn what you can do to cope with the changes that come with an early-stage diagnosis.

Living with Alzheimer's for Middle-Stage Caregivers
In the middle stage of Alzheimer’s disease, those who were care partners now become hands-on caregivers. Join us to hear helpful strategies to provide safe, effective and comfortable care in the middle stage of Alzheimer’s.

Living with Alzheimer's for Late-Stage Caregivers
In the late stage of Alzheimer’s disease, caregiving typically involves new ways of connecting and interacting with the person with the disease. In this 2-part series, you’ll hear from caregivers and professionals about resources, monitoring care and providing meaningful connection for the person with late-stage Alzheimer’s and their families.

Legal and Financial
If you or someone you know is affected by Alzheimer's disease or dementia, the time for legal and financial planning is now. Legal and Financial Planning for Alzheimer's Disease is a workshop, presented by the Alzheimer's Association, for anyone who would like to know more about what legal and financial issues to consider and how to put plans in place.
