Memory Connections: Helping Families Navigate Their Dementia Journey
August 29, 2023, from 3-4 p.m. ET
Memory Connections, an ACL-funded initiative in North Carolina, is a multi-faceted project that offers support, creativity, education, and engaging activities for people living with dementia and their caregivers. The project includes a specific focus on African Americans and Latine populations since these have greater risk for developing Alzheimer's Disease or other dementias. In this webinar, participants will learn how the partners in this project are working together to create a unique continuum of dementia care. Presenters will highlight the Maya Angelou Center for Health Equity's Caregiver College, a week-long program that educates African Americans about Alzheimer’s Disease and related dementias. Caregiver College graduates apply their newly acquired knowledge by delivering presentations to their social groups, churches, family members, friends and business connections.
