Free Educational Conference for People with Alzheimer’s Disease and Their Caregivers On Wednesday, June 26, the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America (AFA) will offer a hands-on opportunity for people to gain support and practical skills at its free “5 Boroughs Concepts in Care Conference” in New York. This daylong educational event, which will be held at the New York Marriott Marquis hotel in Times Square, will feature three tracks of study, one for family caregivers, one for healthcare professionals and one for people with Alzheimer’s disease or a related illness. Presentations by top health and caregiving experts will range from an understanding of the disease and tips for daily living to more taboo topics, such as heading off potential violence and how to handle inappropriate sexual behavior. For individuals with Alzheimer’s disease, facilitators will engage attendees in horticultural, art, dance and other creative activities that showcase the benefits of social and mental stimulation. AFA will also offer free respite care, supervised by professional caregivers, for people with more advanced dementia who are unable to participate in the sessions. Breakfast, lunch and program materials will be provided. For more information or to register, please call 866-232-8484. If you’ll be in the greater New York area, we hope to see you there!
