Caregiver Townhall - save the date!

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.

We'll also present the feedback we received earlier this autumn when we asked our readers to share what they see as the biggest challenges looming on the dementia care front.

Please consider coming along to this informal event designed to inform and discuss issues that are important to dementia caregivers.

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