If you are a friend or family member of someone who has dementia, this program is for you! Although most useful when attended just after a diagnosis, the information and education are relevant and practical for use through the middle stage of Alzheimer’s disease.
The following topics are covered: understanding dementia, important steps to take after a diagnosis (including legal and financial planning), and helpful community resources for all stages. Download a schedule here.
