November 5th, 2010 · No Comments · Health, News

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, nearly 11 million Americans are providing care for someone with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia without assistance. The nonprofit National Private Duty Association (NPDA) has announced that it will host a family caregiver education web conference entitled “Caring for Someone with Alzheimers at Home” on Tuesday, Nov. 16 at 8pm EST. The free live and interactive web conference will provide families with advice on steps to help them provide the necessary care.
“November is recognized as National Family Caregivers Month,” said Sheila McMackin, president of NPDA. “NPDA is hosting this valuable event to raise awareness of family caregiver issues during this important month. Our goal is to provide education to families dealing with the special needs of Alzheimer’s patients. Keeping someone with Alzheimer’s at home can be challenging, but very positive. Our experts will provide insight and education to support caregivers facing this situation.
The web conference topics will address issues relating to patient assessment, care plans, caregiver education, safety, and other care issues related specifically to Alzheimer’s patients and the disease itself.
Pre-registration for the event is required. Those interested may sign up by visiting the registration link at privatedutyhomecare.org.
