People with Alzheimer’s have many abilities that do not necessarily diminish over time. Caregivers can have meaningful relationships and vibrant interactions with those for whom they care every day. This half-day interactive symposium for professionals and caregivers will present current research and practice, offering new ways to understand and engage people with Alzheimer’s.
Dr. John Zeisel, our keynote speaker, will provide inspiration and practical knowledge as he describes pathways to creativity and emotional intelligence in people with Alzheimer’s. A panel of experts will offer perspectives on new ways researchers and practitioners are recognizing and expanding capacity as more people live longer with this disease.
The morning will conclude with three concurrent hands-on workshops targeting specific strategies to use in day-to-day living and working with someone with Alzheimer’s.
Presented by Jewish Family & Children’s Service in collaboration with the Alzheimer’s Association.
