2017 has been a momentous year, for our Society and on many fronts related to dementia care. We'd like to kick off 2018 with a discussion oriented meeting for caregivers of people with dementia. We hope you'll be able to join us.
We'll take the opportunity to update participants on developments at The Dementia Society and to take any questions about our programs, governance, recent name change, etc.

When: Wednesday, January 24th, 4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.
