Families with Alzheimer's patients get help through experts.
The Alzheimer’s Association Midlands Chapter is hosting a major conference on the issue.
The Dementia Care Conference will feature national, regional and local authorities on Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and other dementias. Howard Gendelman, MD, Professor of Internal Medicine at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, will be delivering the keynote address on his research on rebuilding a damaged brain.
Area health care professionals: physicians, nurses, pharmacists, occupational therapists, speech pathologists, social workers, and nursing/assisted living administrators are invited to hear Dr. Gendelman and other national and local professionals in the field of Alzheimer’s disease address current issues relating to caring for those affected by dementia. Family caregivers, allied health associations, business and community leaders, and government officials are welcome to attend as well.
Conference participants will learn about genetic risk factors, the use of technology in dementia care, how to improve the quality of nursing care in long-term facilities, non pharmacological approves to dementia, along with many other dementia related topics.
