Whether you live in Plattsburgh NY, Lake Placid NY, Tupper Lake NY, Long Lake NY, or even Granville NY, we’re here to help. Our services include free online dementia training as well as in-person dementia caregiver classes and Alzheimer’s disease education workshops.
Caregiver education and training are available and provide the necessary knowledge and information to enable caregivers to navigate through the progression of dementia. The current topics may include, but are not limited to:
- Dementia and its progression
- Behavior management strategies and interventions

Sometimes you may feel that you don’t know how to care for your loved one who has Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia. You are not alone. Each day may bring different challenges.

A variety of in-person and/or virtual caregiver education and training programs are available throughout the Upstate New York region.
