Dementia & Alzheimer’s Awareness Conference

Save the Date for the 20th Annual Alzheimer's Awareness Conference "Holistic Approaches for Dementia Care" to be held Friday, November 17, 2017.

The 19th Annual Alzheimer’s Awareness Conference was held Friday, November 18, 2016 at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Cape Cod - Hyannis

Thinking Outside the Box
Innovative Strategies for Dementia Care

You asked and we listened. You wanted to learn new and creative strategies for working with dementia to improve your caregiving experience.

The 19th Annual Alzheimer’s Awareness conference helped us think outside of the box by introducing an array of fresh approaches to caregiving.  

  • We learned how innovative designs for both interior and exterior living can improve function in those with cognitive loss presented by Sharon Ricardi and Rob Hoover from The Northbridge Companies.
  • A. Michael Bloom of Bloom Coaching and Performance introduced key strategies to successfully support families dealing with dementia.  
  • We learned how to use Improv as a communication tool? David La Graffe from Healing Moments and Lights up Improv presented new ideas to help increase communication. 
  • Susan Fernald from Home Instead Senior Care, Michelle E. Woodbrey of 2Sisters Senior Living Advisors, and Alison Stockman, Director of Avita Memory Care at Laurelwood presented an interactive train-the-trainer session on the benefits and utilization of reminiscing boxes.
