In honor of National Alzheimer’s Disease Month and National Caregivers Month in November, the Alzheimer’s Association, Central New York Chapter will host a series of online forums in November featuring experts in dementia care.
CNY Caregiver Chat welcomes dementia caregivers with a person computer to join in for an interactive discussion with experts in the field of Alzheimer’s and dementia care, long-term care, and elder law and financial planning.
CNY Caregiver Chats will take place on Tuesdays during the month of November from 1 to 3 p.m.
Caregivers can register for free at www.alz.org/cny and will be asked to download a small helper file to their PC or Mac before joining the chat. Caregivers can use the speakers and microphone on their computer or a telephone to participate.
Topics for the series include:
Nov. 5: Alzheimer’s Behaviors
Nov. 12: Making the Transition to Long-Term Care
Nov. 19: Legal and Financial Concerns
Nov. 26: Activities at the Holidays
Each session begins with a short presentation, followed by a moderated question and answer session.
The CNY Caregiver Chat series is a presentation of the Marty Manning Online Education Center.
The center, which was created in memory of a former caregiver, support group facilitator and board member, is the Chapter’s gateway to web-based live webinars and on-demand education presentations.
