Mass-ALA is pleased to provide you with a preview of our Dementia Training, scheduled for November 18th as an all-day virtual event!  As we have learned over the course of the pandemic, social isolation has contributed to an unusually rapid decline in cognitive function among many older adults, specifically those who have dementia. This training will take a deep dive into some of the factors contributing to social isolation and provide tangible, practical information that will help ALR staff as they work toward mitigating its devastating effects among people with dementia. 

There are various sponsorship price points that will appeal to all businesses, including some exclusive opportunities. Click here to read about our Dementia sponsorship opportunities.

We look forward to having you attend our virtual training.
