Alzheimer's Disease in the Hispanic Community:
Understanding the Challenges Faced by Hispanic Older Adults
Capitol Hill Briefing
Tuesday, May 7, 2013
122 Cannon House Office Building
9:30 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.
The National Hispanic Council on Aging (NHCOA) - the leading national organization working to improve the lives of Hispanic older adults, their families, and caregivers - invites you to a Capitol Hill briefing on Alzheimer's disease in Hispanic communities.
The briefing will feature a panel of experts who will discuss how Alzheimer's disease effects Hispanic older adults and the unique challenges caregivers face while taking care of their loved ones with Alzheimer's. We will also explore strategies to decrease the challenges of caregivers. Over the last several months, NHCOA has hosted focus groups and interviews to gain an in-depth understanding of what Hispanic older adults and their caregivers know about Alzheimer's disease and how they experience caring for their loved ones with the condition. Speakers will highlight the results of this research and also discuss the latest treatments, research, and best practices as they relate to the Latino community.
