Join the Alzheimer’s Association on Sunday, August 26 for a special one-day session just for
family caregivers. We’ll discuss the unique issues that face
individuals and families who are adapting to the changing needs of a
loved one with dementia.

Dementia care experts will lead
sessions on topics that include accessing appropriate dementia care;
communicating with a person with dementia; and creating safe living
spaces for a person with dementia.

Our opening speaker,
Ann Davidson, is the author of multiple books about the 12 years she
spent caring for her husband, Julian, who was diagnosed with
Alzheimer’s at age 59. Ann will tell their story and describe how
together they faced Alzheimer’s with a positive outlook.

Your
$30 registration fee includes a boxed lunch and beverage breaks.
Throughout the day you’ll also have an opportunity to browse our
exhibit hall, which will host representatives from dozens of Alzheimer
and care-related organizations. They will be on hand to answer your
questions and give you information about how their services can benefit
and support your caregiving duties.

Don’t miss this
opportunity to meet hundreds of other family caregivers who know what
you’re experiencing – and professionals in the field who can provide
helpful tips and guidance. Register today!
