The Alzheimer's and Other Dementias CARE Program

A new, free training program for families struggling with Alzheimer's disease is now available. Some of the top Alzheimer's experts in North America worked with Home Instead Senior Care to develop a unique person-centered care program for seniors with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia.

The Alzheimer's and Other Dementias CARE Program incorporates an innovative, hands-on approach to help families deal with the difficult behavioral changes that often are associated with Alzheimer's disease or other dementias. Area families are invited to attend free Alzheimer's CARE training workshops that will be offered the first three Thursdays in June from 6-7:30 p.m. at Wesley Manor, 5012 East Manslick Road, in Louisville. During the workshop, program experts will teach caregivers how to manage behaviors, encourage engagement, care for themselves while caring for their loved one.
