Education programs for those caring for loved ones with Alzheimer's

Most of these programs, described below, are free of charge.


What Now? Caregiver Orientation Series
Caring for someone with Alzheimer's can be overwhelming, but the Alzheimer's Association is here to help. As a caregiver, you likely have many responsibilities, and it is important to have a support network to help you as you navigate your Alzheimer's journey. Classes are designed to provide information and allow for guided group discussion. Caregivers may select the training that is most needed at the time and pick up the other classes at a later time or take the complete 8-week course.
