AOA to host webinar series on Alzheimer’s Disease and Tools for Caregivers, starting May 9th
April 30, 2012
The National Institute on Aging (NIA) and the Administration on Aging (AoA), in partnership with grantees including the Alzheimer's Association, Alzheimer’s Disease Research Centers, Alzheimer’s Disease Education and Referral Center, and the Eldercare Locator are partnering to host a webinar series to improve coordination of resources available to assist persons with Alzheimer’s Disease or other dementias and their family caregivers! All are invited — especially new staff / interns / volunteers, or those just interested in getting a refresher.
The information discussed in these webinars is especially timely. The National Alzheimer’s Plan includes action steps for AoA and NIA to share this information. Additionally many States, Area Agencies and local service providers are also working to create and enhance dementia-capable systems of care and support.
