Denver, CO (PRWEB) November 12, 2014
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
