Arte de Cuidar is presented by the Alzheimer’s Association, Rochester & Finger Lakes Region; Catholic Family Center; The Community Place of Greater Rochester Inc. and Ibero American Action League.

El Arte de Cuidar is an opportunity to learn more about Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias to better care for loved ones with the disease, but also for caregivers to take better care of themselves. The risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease among Hispanics is 1.5 times higher than it is among non-Hispanic whites, according to the Alzheimer’s.

Workshops at El Arte de Cuidar will address topics such as managing challenging behaviors and communication. It will include sessions on the importance of art and music for individuals with dementia and on recognizing the signs of elder abuse.
