Moving Forward with Alzheimer's & Dementia Series: Sponsored by The Alzheimer’s Foundation of America and Senior Helpers 

Alzheimer’s and dementia awareness has taken 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. This three-part webinar series 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.

About Alzheimer’s Foundation of America:

The Alzheimer’s Foundation of America, based in New York, is a leading non-profit organization that unites more than 1,600 member organizations nationwide with the goal of providing optimal care and services to individuals confronting dementia, and to their caregivers and families. Its services include a toll-free hot line, educational materials, a free quarterly magazine for caregivers, professional training and national standards of excellence in dementia care. For more information about AFA, call toll-free 866-AFA-8484 or visit www.alzfdn.org.

About Senior Helpers:
