If you are a professional in the healthcare field or a caregiver of someone with Alzheimer's or related dementia, this symposum is for you. The program is designed to provide an update on current medical and psychosocial treatments for Alzheimer's disease and its symptoms. The focus will be on the aging and elderly population in respect to persons with dementia and their caregivers and family members; participants will learn how a dementia-related illness can impact the entire family unit and ways to cope to have the maximum benefit for all involved in the care plan. In addition, current research for diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer's disease and dementia will be reviewed. Recommendations will be given for best care practices for nursing staff, social workers, and administrators in a care facility.

Call 800-272-3900 to register or be added to the mailing list for future events.

Professionals in the Long-term Care Continuum - Nurses, Social Workers, Administrators, Activity Professionals (we will be offering CEs for these professionals) and all related staff who want to learn more and network with others in the field.
