Martin Family Alzheimer Disease Symposium Resources

Below find information about the 8th Annual Martin Family Symposium held in 2014:

Caregiving and Dementia: Decisions and Transitions was designed for those who care for people with dementia and related neurodegenerative disorders.  The program was beneficial to both family caregivers and professional care providers.  The program focused on some of the difficult decisions that families and providers must make while caring for people with these disorders across the course of the disease.  In addition, sensitive issues such as intimacy and dementia, genetic testing and legal/financial issues for caregivers to consider werealso presented in smaller breakout sessions.

Below are links to video recordings of some of the sessions.
