For all registered attendees and special sessions for the PAC Certified Independent Community


This year’s PAC Conference; Living Under the Umbrella of Dementia will dig deep into the types of dementia that are so often misunderstood or misdiagnosed. While Alzheimers is a more well-known form of dementia, Teepa and other experts on the topics this year will discuss Alzheimers along with Lewy Body, Frontal-Temporal, Vascular, young onset, atypical, dual-diagnoses, other health impairments, and more.
Each afternoon, the PAC Team, alongside those living with dementia, will focus on PAC Skills that work specific to these different forms. There will also be a chance to visit and network with over 35 sponsors from all over the world. Help us reach our goal of 500 attendees this year by registering today to be the change we want to see in the world of dementia care.
