About the event
Dementia Dialogues is a FREE training course designed to educate the community and individuals who care for persons who exhibit signs and symptoms associated with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia's.
An estimated 44 million people worldwide have Alzheimer’s disease, including approximately 5 million in the United States. The number of people with the disease doubles every 5 years. The Alzheimer’s Disease Registry reports that an estimated 60,000 new cases will occur between 2012 and 2017.
Although much research has been conducted on the cause and cure of Alzheimer’s disease, little information is available about hands-on care. Dementia Dialogues provides the most current and practical information in the care of people with dementia. OSA’s extensive research supports this training program.
The program is offered at no cost to participants and is held regionally by approved trainers.
