Caregiver Workshops

Just as the person with Alzheimer's needs and deserves loving care, so does the caregiver. The goal of these conferences is to give caregivers an opportunity to hear new information, experience self-care activities, socialize and celebrate together the strength and courage it takes to walk through this illness.
