Live Webinar with Teepa Snow, ACAP Caregiver Symposium

“Caring and Coping:  When a Loved One Has Dementia”

2021 ACAP Caregiver Symposium

More than 5 million people in the US have some form of dementia.  Knowing there can be lots of challenges in caring for someone with dementia, and coping with the demands can be difficult for families and caregivers, ACAP is offering a free, virtual symposium, “Caring and Coping: When a Loved One Has Dementia.”  The symposium will help families and professionals learn how to more effectively  interact with and care for someone who has dementia as well as ways to cope with the inherent challenges.  Symposium attendees will gain insight into the many forms of dementia and what happens with brain changes, become aware of recent research findings, and learn practical tips for a positive approach to caring for a loved one or client with dementia.

Teepa Snow, one of the world’s leading advocates and educators for dementia and other forms of brain change, is our symposium speaker.  She is back by popular demand from last year’s symposium attendees.  With over 40 years of rich and varied clinical and academic experiences as an occupational therapist, educator, and in-demand speaker, Teepa combines engaging stories, real-life experiences, compassionate humor and practical tips to help attendees gain greater understanding of dementia, increase their knowledge about reasons people with brain change do what they do and learn ways to care for a loved one or care recipient who has dementia.

Registration for the free symposium will begin September 20, 2021.  Register here as of that date.
