Tom Flanigan

Alzheimer's patients and their caregivers were hit especially hard during the pandemic. Now a Tallahassee conference this Saturday April 9 will provide some much-needed help.
The 37th Alzheimer's Disease Education and Training Conference will have 4 major sessions. The Alzheimer's Project Executive Director John Trombetta described one of them.

"Nicolette Castagna from the FSU College of Medicine is doing a strategies to help care partners in urgent situations involving persons with dementia. In other words, when your loved one's in crisis, how do you respond to that?"

He said registration is underway now.

"We'll be at the FSU College of Medicine on April 9th. To register, you can go to our web site: alzheimersproject.org. We'll have respite care available, so if you're a caregiver and you need some care for your loved one while you're attending the conference, we offer that at no charge."

Saturday's Alzheimer's Disease Education and Training Conference will run from 8:30 a.m. until 3 p.m.
