Carillon to Host Alzheimer’s Symposium April 18 in Durham
Learn the latest in the care, treatment and prevention of Alzheimer’s disease at Carillon’s April 18 Alzheimer’s Symposium. The event will be held from 12-4 p.m. at Millennium Hotel Durham, 2800 Campus Walk Avenue.
Respected Duke University professor, Dr. Kathleen Hayden, will share the latest research on Alzheimer’s disease, including new news on prevention, early detection, and genetic risk factors. Hayden is a faculty member at the Bryan Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center, which is working to find the initiating mechanisms of the disease, and to develop new treatments with the potential to delay, even halt, the progression of the disease.
Carillon’s own Mary Ann Joyce, RN, and Janie Benton, RN, will share tried and true techniques to manage and cope with a loved one’s care needs. An interactive panel of experts will answer your questions on care options, treatment, long-term planning, medication management, and more.
The event offers a wealth of information for caregivers, family members – anyone who has been impacted by Alzheimer’s and dementia.
