Dealing with Dementia

Developed by the Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregiving (RCI), the Dealing with Dementia Workshop provides tips and strategies for caregivers on best practices for caring for their loved ones and themselves. This FREE workshop will be offered at various locations around the state of Georgia. We are now offering workshops in Spanish!

Caregivers who attend the four-hour family caregiver workshop will also receive a copy of the new Dealing with Dementia Guide. This guide provides over 300 pages of information and solutions to problems caregivers face every day. We hope to have the guide available to the public for purchase in 2017.
