Share Article

A Colorado Caregiver will be honored with the George and Pat Sugerman Excellence in Caregiving Award at the 25th Annual Education Symposium & Early Stage Forum at 11:45 on November 18th at the Denver Marriott Tech Center. This one-day Symposium, Strategies for Alzheimer’s, Dementia & Memory Loss, brings together experts on Alzheimer’s who will help transform the way we think about the disease.

In 1983, President Ronald Reagan, who was later diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, designated November as National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month. President Bill Clinton named the week of Thanksgiving as a time to honor caregivers in 1997. As an organization founded by caregivers, the Alzheimer’s Association applauds caregivers and hopes to make their efforts a little easier year round with innovative resources that have been designed specifically with families in mind.

Family caregivers of people with memory loss, long-term care & healthcare providers, & people living with early stage memory loss should attend Strategies for Alzheimer's, Dementia, & Memory Loss from 7:30-4:30 on November 18 at the Marriott Tech Center. Registration for family caregivers & people with dementia for Early Stage Forum is $59 and includes lunch, parking and conference materials. A limited number of scholarships are available to cover the registration costs for families. Registration for professionals is $149. To register go to http://www.alz.org/co or 303.813.1669
