Support for Families Navigating the Dementia Journey
Tuesday, August 29, 2023
3:00-4:00 pm, Eastern time
Join the National Alzheimer’s and Dementia Resource Center (NADRC) for “Memory Connections: Helping Families Navigate Their Dementia Journey with a Menu of Program Options.”
During this webinar, participants will learn about Memory Connections, an Administration for Community Living (ACL)-funded initiative through Senior Services Inc. in North Carolina. Memory Connections is a multi-faceted project that offers support, creativity, education, and engaging activities for people living with dementia and their caregivers.
Senior Services Inc. and their partners Novant Health, Atrium Health Sticht Center, Winston-Salem State University Occupational Therapy Department, and the Maya Angelou Center for Health Equity are working together to create a unique continuum of dementia care.
Because Hispanic Americans and African Americans are more likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia than white Americans, the project includes a specific focus on reaching out to these populations. Presenters will highlight the Maya Angelou Center for Health Equity’s Caregiver College, a week-long program that educates African Americans about Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. Caregiver College graduates apply their newly acquired knowledge by delivering presentations to their social groups, churches, family members, friends, and business connections.
NADRC webinars are free of charge and open to the public, although pre-registration is required. The webinars are recorded and will be available for future viewing on the NADRC website. Closed captioning is available during the webinar and will be included in the recording.
