Alzheimer’s Conference

Alzheimer’s Conference

The wonderful and informative Alzheimer’s Conference can still be viewed on-line.  All four recorded sessions have been uploaded to our website and can be viewed at:

Monday, Nov. 1: We’re Not in Kansas Anymore!)

Presenters address first step concerns, from the initial diagnosis, to symptoms of dementia, what to expect, early stage behaviors, and how not to forget about yourself, during this shared journey on the purple path. In addition, panelists will review legal issues, financial planning, and Veteran services, addressing long-term care questions that everyone needs answered as early as possible!

Wednesday, Nov. 3: There’s No Place Like Home

Experts share guidance on maintaining health and safety at home, with a little help, and when you need it. Panelists will also review support services that can be provided at home, with home care, home health, actual medical care with physicians, caregiver burnout, and local support groups. This day will also include further discussions of legal and financial considerations, specific to providing care at home. 

Monday, Nov. 8: Welcome to the Land of Oz! 

Gain insight on later steps, such as: When is it time to move? What’s the right thing for my family? Where would my loved one go? Who can help? Expert panelists will answer these questions, while explaining the process of choosing and moving a loved one into a community of care, including different levels of care, funding options, and the required legal documents. 

Wednesday, Nov. 10: Somewhere Over the Rainbo

Discussions will explore final decision-making, coping with grief, regret, and self-care, along with healing and finding peace after the long journey of caring for a loved one suffering from dementia. In addition, Hospice and Palliative care share their expertise, knowledge, and the “good good-bye”.
