Memory Connections, an ACL-funded initiative through Senior Services Inc. in North Carolina, is a multi-faceted project that offers support, creativity, education, and engaging activities for people living with dementia and their caregivers. Because Hispanic Americans and African Americans are more likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia than White Americans, the project includes a specific focus on reaching out to these populations. In this webinar, participants will learn how Senior Services Inc. and their partners Novant Health, Atrium Health Sticht Center, Winston-Salem State University Occupational Therapy Department and the Maya Angelou Center for Health Equity are working together to create a unique continuum of dementia care. Presenters will highlight the Maya Angelou Center for Health Equity’s Caregiver College, a week-long program that educates African Americans about Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. Caregiver College graduates apply their newly acquired knowledge by delivering presentations to their social groups, churches, family members, friends and business connections.
