Family Caregiver Workshop – Dementia
Four- to eight-hour workshops available to the public statewide, instructed by a UAMS Nurse Educator. The workshop will present an overview of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease and provide caregiving tips that contribute to maintaining respect, dignity, and quality of life for the person living with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. This workshop is available at our Centers on Aging and by request on location to groups of 10 or more. For on-location requests, contact agec@uams.edu.

Community Awareness: Alzheimer’s Experience: Take a Walk in Their Shoes
The experience consists of 5-10 minute per-person tours that are presented at our Centers on Aging as a half/full day event and can be requested as a special event on-location for large groups, including communities of faith and employees at senior living centers and medical facilities in Arkansas. This tour is available by request for half days or full days on location for community organizations, communities of faith and schools (contact us at agec@uams.edu) and at our Center on Aging on selected dates.
