Getting a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s or dementia can be scary. Not only for ourselves but our family, too. That is why the Alzheimer’s Association has provided educational programs to help families who find themselves diagnosed. We have partnered with the University of Missouri Extension Office to bring you these vital programs virtually for you to watch from the safety of your own home.
