If you have answered "YES" to one or more of the above questions, I encourage you to become an advocate through Dementia Connection™.
- I offer a FREE monthly Dementia Connection "ASK CALL" teleconference and webinar to answer your own personal questions about any aspect of Alzheimer's disease or other dementia. I also answer questions about dementia and Alzheimer's disease prevention. This is done by emailing your question in using the directions we email to you after we announce each teleconference/webinar.
