Legal and Financial Planning for Alzheimer's Disease
The diagnosis of Alzheimer's makes planning for the future more important than ever. Through this interactive two-part program, you will learn about important legal and financial issues, how to put plans in place, and how to access resources near you.

Living with Alzheimer's for People with Alzheimer's
The diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease is life-changing and leads to many questions. In this three-part program, you will hear from others who have been where you are, and will learn what you need to know to navigate this chapter of your life.

Living with Alzheimer's: For Caregivers: Early Stage
In the early stage of Alzheimer’s disease, families face new questions as they adjust. This three-part program provides practical answers to the questions that arise in the early stage.

Living with Alzheimer's: For Caregivers: Middle Stage
In the middle stage of Alzheimer’s disease, care partners now become hands-on caregivers. During this three-part series, you will hear caregivers and professionals discuss helpful strategies to provide safe, effective and comfortable care.

Living with Alzheimer's: For Caregivers: Late Stage
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 two-part series, you’ll hear from caregivers and professionals about resources, monitoring care and ways to engage in meaningful connections.

Living with Alzheimer's for Younger-Onset Alzheimer's
This program offers answers to questions about younger-onset (also known as early-onset) Alzheimer’s disease. Hear from those directly affected and learn how to ease the impact throughout the course of the disease.

Dementia Conversations
This workshop will offer tips on how to have honest and caring conversations with family members about deciding when to stop driving, going to the doctor, and making legal and financial plans.

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. As people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias progress in their journey and the ability to use words is lost, families need new ways to connect. This workshop explores 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.

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. Learn how 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.
