Description:
Are you too busy to attend an educational program? Audio Conference is designed for those who aren’t able to attend a program outside the home or office.

Once registered, you will receive through the e-mail, a toll free telephone number with instructions. On the day of the conference you will call-in and join many others who are seeking the latest information on memory loss.

Connecting / Communicating Through the Cloud of Dementia
Mike Bius, Manager of Education and Outreach Alzheimer’s Association, Greater Illinois Chapter
Whether it is Alzheimer’s or another dementia, one of the most frustrating challenges is trying to continue to connect with the person as they seem to be slipping away. Understanding how dementia affects the brain is a critical component of remaining connected to your loved one. Join us in this audio conference to gain insight into effective strategies to break through barriers and stay connected.
Your Way: How to Find Dignity and Choice When Considering Professional Care
Tami Wacker, Operations Manager and Regional Ombudsman, East Central Illinois Area Agency on Aging
Making the decision to accept outside help is never an easy one, and people are often surprised to learn of the many care options that are available. Join us as we discuss the various levels of care that can be brought into the home or found in the community. You will also learn strategies to make informed decisions about care and how to build realistic expectations.
Legal and Financial Considerations for Older Adults: Dotting Your ‘i’s and Crossing Your ‘t’s
John Lafond, Attorney at Law, Senior Staff Attorney—Land of Lincoln Legal Assistance Foundation
Planning for our legal and financial future is something we all should do, but too easily push to another day. If someone you care about has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, legal and financial planning is more important than ever. Participants will learn what issues need to be considered, and how to put those plans in place, no matter your income level.
Mindful Caregiving: Being Intentional for Yourself and Your Loved One
Richard Apple, LCSW—Senior Manager, Care Navigation Alzheimer’s Association, Greater Illinois Chapter
As the end of the year approaches, it seems the stress level gets higher and higher. Join us to learn ways to be mindful and intentional in your efforts to avoid burnout while continuing to feel good about the care you are providing. Specific strategies and techniques will be shared that can assist you in day-to-day caregiving.
