Alzheimer's Conference 2021
Aging and Disability Resources and the Health Care Providers Council of Pierce County present the 2021 Alzheimer’s Conference
Due to last year's success, and the continued safety of participants, the 16th annual Alzheimer's Conference will be held virtually this year. Join us four times in November from 11 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. for presentations that offer information and practical skills for individuals and families dealing with Alzheimer’s and other dementias.
Please save the dates - November 1st, 3rd, 8th, & 10th to attend an online conference, in observance of Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month. This year's conference is called "Following the Purple Brick Road," and will navigate the audience through the cyclones that are encountered when caring for a loved one suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and/or other types of dementia. Each day a 90-minute session, from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM, features expert panelists that will address the different stages in the family caregiver experience, as well as, educate on legal, financial, and Veteran services available. Participants are able to login at 10:30 AM to access information and resources on a presentation loop. Easily register online or by phone and call the Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) at 253-798-4600.
It is intended that this conference will offer Continuing Education Credits (CEUs) to eligible caregivers,
if approved by the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services. More information coming soon.
Last year, we held the first ever virtual Alzheimer's Conference during the month of September. We had over 100 participants join us for presentations by community providers and subject-matter experts. Below are links to presentations from the 2020 Alzheimer's Conference.
