June 5th 2010
We are excited to announce the “Caring for Person With Memory Loss” conference to be held at the University of Minnesota (Moos Tower 2-650) from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM, Saturday, June 5th, 2010. Attendance is free for all participants. The goal of this conference is to provide information, support, and education for adult children, spouses, parents, community care providers, and other individuals concerned with caring for persons with memory loss. The presentations will be lively and focus on exercise, driving behavior management, life care planning, transitional care management, and novel music stimulation approaches for persons with memory loss. We will also have a number of other information resources for families and professionals as well as free food and refreshments, courtesy of Freedom Pointe Assisted Living of Minnetonka!
Attached is a brochure describing the conference as well as a flyer. Please feel free to post or distribute to anyone who may be interested. If you would like more copies of the brochure or flyer, have any questions, or would like to RSVP for the event, please contact me, Dr. Joe Gaugler, at 612-626-2485 612-626-2485 (phone) or firstname.lastname@example.org (email preferred). We also have also this information available at the following conference portal: http://www.nursing.umn.edu/AboutUs/Calendar/2010Events/CaringforaPersonwithMemoryLoss/
