Come network with Community Partners and join us for a free workshop-


Planning Ahead to Age Well with Dementia:

Tools to help adults with memory concerns make a health care plan to know & honor their care choices.

Planning ahead and all through a progressive dementia diagnosis is essential to ensure we know an adult’s values and care choices, and can help family & doctors match quality care for healthy aging.

Guest speaker, Ronda Randazzo, MSW, LICSW, CDP, Manager of Education, Alzheimer's Association will provide up-to-date information and strategies to help care providers start early and on-going discussions with adults, families and caregivers.

  • Health Care Agents & Guardians: Role & decision-making power for everyday to long term care

  • Healthy Aging to End of Life Care: What to expect as the disease progresses; helpful communication strategies; The Next Steps Tool Kit
