Ina picture-oct-2012-200x200Dr Ina Gilmore talk is the Introduction and Overview.  Alzheimer’s disease is life changing for both those who are diagnosed and those who care for them.  Being a caregiver doesn’t come with an instruction manual and trying to learn everything on your own can be confusing and overwhelming.  Caregiving is hard and can lead to feelings of stress, guilt, anger, sadness … and isolation!

That’s why we created the Triumph over the Isolation of Alzheimer’s Telesummit.  During this 5-day online event, 17 leading experts will provide the information and resources you need to evaluate your needs, identify action steps and find solutions!
