In honor of National Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, we welcome you to a FREE breakfast and FREE CE educational event!

Please join True Care Home Health Care and Inspired Memory Care for a Continuing Education Event & breakfast.  All professionals are welcome to attend.  Social Workers will receive one contact hour of continuing education credit.

We will discuss evidenced-based non-pharmacological approaches to minimize or eliminate distressing behaviors.  Participants will explore distressing actions and expressions within the framework of communication.  Presenters will share case studies in which non-pharmacological approaches have brought a voice, purpose and meaning to an individual.  We will learn how exploring the root cause of distress can help support an individual with a memory loss to have a more meaningful life.
