Date 8:30 a.m. - 3:45 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 20
Description As people develop memory loss from Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia, it can be difficult to know how to connect, interact and motivate your person with dementia. What if you had a tool that could had the ability to remind, connect, soothe, motivate, distract and move people living with memory loss? Join us as we explore how to use music as a way to increase quality of life for both the person living with memory loss and those who care about them. 

This full-day conference is designed to incorporate relevant research around the disease as well as strategies for a new normal and maintaining balance while caring for another.
