Alzheimer’s Arkansas invites caregivers of individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia to participate in a workshop on Friday, October 18 at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church in El Dorado.

The “Hope for the Future” workshop provides education, tools, training, and support to family and professional caregivers to help improve their skills regarding Alzheimer’s disease and its progression.

The workshop is free to caregivers.

“Whether it’s legal advice, tough financial decisions, redirecting challenging behaviors or simply learning what Alzheimer’s is, we’ll have something for everyone,” said Carolyn Torrence, program and education director for Alzheimer’s Arkansas.

In order to ensure the events are accessible for all caregivers, the organization is offering mini-grants to cover the cost of daycare or in-home care on the day of the events. Attendees can fill out a simple form and receive reimbursement shortly after the workshop.

Continuing education credits (CEU’s) are available for nurses, nursing home administrators, occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants, physical therapists, pharmacists, psychologists, emergency medical services, social workers and certified nursing assistants.

The workshop will be 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. October 18 at the church, 512 Champagnolle Road.
