We often find ourselves with the opportunity to work with Clients who have Alzheimer Disease. For that reason we have our staff complete a certification program through the Alzheimer Society and we keep on top of the latest research developments. In the latest newsletter, I came across a listing of educational events being offered and thought you might find them to be of interest.
