Senior Helpers connects professional caregivers with seniors who wish to live at home as opposed to in a nursing or assisted living facility. The company has 300 franchises in 39 states and one in Canada offering a wide range of personal and companion care services to assist seniors living independently, with a strong focus on quality of life for the client and peace of mind for their families. Senior Helpers strives to be the leading companion and personal care provider that offers dependable, consistent, and affordable home care. Senior Helpers’ Senior Gems Program is the first of its kind in the in-home care industry. It is a step-by-step guide that teaches caregivers and families how to care for their beloved seniors through each stage of dementia and Alzheimer’s. The program aims to improve the lives of families touched by these debilitating diseases with local and national initiatives. For more information, please visit www.seniorhelpers.com.

Alzheimer’s and dementia awareness has made great strides in the past 10 years. There is a wealth of information available for family caregivers and health care professionals caring for and treating those with these diseases, but it can be difficult to pinpoint the methods that will make the most difference. ASA has partnered with Senior Helpers and Alzheimer’s Foundation of America to present this three-part webinar series that boils down the overwhelming amount of information available to bring you salient, meaningful resources, techniques, and ideas that you can immediately implement with people you meet and work with everyday who are living with Alzheimer’s and dementia.

This series is a great opportunity to earn CEUs while gaining valuable information that will help you in your work with older adults—all without leaving your desk. It’s convenient and it’s FREE!

Each of the webinars will be recorded and available for viewing for up to 30 days after the live presentation. Pre-registration is required to attend the live or the recorded webinars.
