Alzheimer’s Disease: Approaches to Care

A Virtual Conference Series In partnership with HomeCare Options

When a family member or friend’s memory loss becomes concerning, there are many questions that caregivers face: Is it Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia? What are the different types of dementia and how do I get a diagnosis? Are there treatment options? How can I best prepare and adapt to changes in communication and behavior that may occur? How do I best manage my own emotional stress? This free, virtual conference series for caregivers will help answer these vital questions. Each session will include time for Q & A.
