2022 annual Hopeful Alzheimer's & Caregivers' Symposium (virtual)

September 10 @ 11:00 am EDT - 3:00 pm EDT EDT

FREE

The Hopeful Alzheimer's & Caregivers' Symposium provides education and information for caregivers of loved ones suffering from Alzheimer's disease. The 2022 program will include a video of persons suffering from various types of dementia. Additionally, some of these individuals will join us and answer questions. Dr. Monica Parker, Director of the Goizueta Alzheimer's Disease Research Center at Emory University will discuss the illness and the latest research findings. Mrs. Shondale Coleman of Amedicis Hospice will discuss how to access hospice services, once a person has an Alzheimer's diagnosis. Attorney Joseph Gilsoul will discuss how to apply for Social Security Disability benefits, once an Alzheimer's diagnosis is received. National Council of Dementia minds will be presenting "For Such a Time as This," a compelling video presentation by seven black individuals living with dementia. In this dramatic presentation, they will share the impact of their diagnosis and the important role their Christian faith plays in their ability to live well. This presentation is hope-filled, challenging, and inspirational. Be prepared for a powerful experience that will transform your view of living with dementia. The presentation allows persons living with dementia to initiate conversations that many are afraid to have and then answer questions from the audience during the Talkback session following the presentation.

Why the Dragonfly Logo?

For centuries, the dragonfly has been a symbol of change and self-realization. It represents hope, happiness, adaptability, and new beginnings.
