ApexCare was pleased to participate as a Bronze Sponsor in the Alzheimer’s Association Care Partner Education Forum held April 19th at the Citrus Heights Community Center. The Care Partner Education Forum is specifically customized to fit the needs of care partners and families caring for those with Mild Cognitive Impairment, Alzheimer’s disease, and other forms of dementia. Family caregivers who participated learned more about the disease process, the latest updates on research, strategies in communication as well as amazing tips on self-care.
The program for the day was filled with wonderful experts who spoke at the forum and below are just a few:
Ruth Gay, MS, Public Policy and Advocacy Director, Alzheimer’s Association Northern California who spoke on Updates of Latest Policies
Professor Ladson Hinton, MD, Director of Geriatric Psychiatry, Dept. of Psychiatry & Behavior Sciences at UCD who spoke on Brain Health
Erika Meredith, DPT, Certified Orthopedic Specialist at Kaiser who gave amazing tips on Effective Communication Strategies
Later in the program there was also a professional panel that discussed Advanced Care Planning and also Professionals from Creative Connections who work to provide solutions to families and their loved ones faced with cognitive impairment to address finding joy and laughter through storytelling and also laughter yoga.
