Virtual Dementia Education Conference

Hosted by the Alzheimer’s Association, Eastern North Carolina Chapter and the Alzheimer’s Association, Western Carolina Chapter, this year’s theme is “The Power of Many” and will take place on Wednesday, September 2 from 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m.  

 

Attendees are invited to join (via video or phone) for the entire virtual event or just the discussions that interest them most. Featuring a variety of discussions led by researchers and other leading experts, some of the session topics will include:

  • The African American Experience with Alzheimer's and Dementia - Experiential insight into how families are managing the insurmountable challenges that are often associated with caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or dementia, with an emphasis on the African American family unit.
  • Living with Younger-onset Alzheimer's and Dementia - Discussing the unique challenges of a younger-onset diagnosis (under 65 years of age). Many individuals are still in the work-place, their spouses/ partners may also be working full-time, and they may still have “full-time" parenting responsibilities, whether children or grandchildren.
  • The Diagnostic Journey and Physician Relationships - Addressing questions around determining a diagnosis, physician referrals, the diagnostic process, and the patient-caregiver-physician relationship.

There is no charge to participate in the Virtual Dementia Education Conference, but registration is required at tinyurl.com/DementiaConf2020. To register by phone or for more information, call 800-272-3900. Registrants will be sent conferencing details prior to the date of the virtual event. Participants will be given the option of joining via video/webinar or through a toll-free number.

Volunteer Drive

Albemarle Commission’s Senior Nutrition Program is seeking Meals on Wheels volunteers for routes in Camden, Chowan, Currituck, Dare, Gates, Hyde, Pasquotank, Perquimans, Tyrrell and Washington counties in North Carolina. There is an urgent need for volunteers in Chowan and Pasquotank counties, who have a waiting list for potential clients due to lack of volunteers. Routes start at 11 am, Monday through Friday. Each route takes about an hour to complete. Volunteering as little as one day a month makes a huge impact for our home bound seniors. For more information on becoming a volunteer, please contact Laura Rollinson, Volunteer Coordinator, at (252)-404-7091 or lrollinson@accog.org.
