The Alzheimer’s Foundation of America (AFA)’s 15th anniversary Educating America National Tour, featuring AFA’s free Concepts in Care educational conference, community memory screenings, and much more, stops in Boston on October 26. The free program is open to professional caregivers, people in the community who are caring for loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease and the general public.
Attendees will learn from renowned Alzheimer’s and caregiving experts, including Dr. Andrew Budson, Chief of Cognitive & Behavioral Neurology at the Veterans Affairs Boston Healthcare System, Professor of Neurology at Boston University, and Lecturer in Neurology at Harvard Medical School., who will provide an overview on research. Other topics include unraveling Alzheimer’s disease, caring for the caregiver, a look into PseudoBulbar Affect (uncontrollable, sudden crying or laughing), and caregiver strategy. A Q&A will follow each session in which attendees can ask the experts questions. Participants will also have the opportunity to network with one other.
