Virtual Alzheimer's and Dementia Caregiving Resources

We will continue to have virtual options available to reach more families. If the pandemic taught us anything, it's to be nimble and to meet families where they are, so we are proud to offer this format, as well. Some of these programs are hosted by our chapter and some are statewide programs hosted by one of our other NY State chapters.
