Alzheimer’s Disease & Dementia Care Seminar
Locations: LaQuinta Inn & Suites 8:00 am – 4:30 pm
People with Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia make up nearly 50% of the residents in long-term care facilities. We will watch this number continue to grow. Yet the only way to provide successful dementia care is to understand the disease process and the significance behind the dementia related behaviors. As a result, attending an Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia Care Seminar will help you care for these residents.
Upcoming seminars are currently being planned
