Understanding Alzheimer’s Especially for the Clergy

Join us for this FREE Professional Webinar

Presented by Amy E. Matthews, who has worked exclusively in the field of Alzheimer’s and related dementia disorders for over 30 years. Her experience ranges from Adult Day Care and Home Health to working as the original Activity Director in the very first dementia-specific Assisted Living Community in the country and later as Executive Director opening a building in West Orange, NJ. Amy currently specializes in professional training and community education. She also provides consulting with professionals and families on best practices and helping them create a plan of care for the future. 

Religion cuts across culture and socioeconomic status. In times of stress and pain, as well as in good times, people turn to their religious organization for guidance and support. This program provides clergy members with a basic understanding of Alzheimer’s and related dementia disorders. It also emphasizes the importance of maintaining a spiritual connection throughout the progression fo the condition with both the individual and the caregiver.

In addition, this program will provide practical techniques for communicating and interacting with the individual and their family members.
