Dementia Caregiving 101

An eight-week session for dementia caregivers to find support and learn more about caring for loved ones with memory loss

Join the Smith Alzheimer’s Center at SIU Medicine for an educational series of what to expect when caring for those with dementia or memory loss.

Starting Tuesday, August 2, Dementia Caregiving 101 is eight weeks long and covers a wide range of topics designed to equip family caregivers of individuals living at home. From communication strategies to planning for the future to caregiver self-care, the class covers different points along one’s journey with dementia and memory loss — see main topics for all eight weeks below.

Attend the sessions that are right for you. Feel free to register for just one week, or all eight. All sessions are on Tuesdays from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., and are both virtual and in person, however, space is limited. Classes will be held at the Medical Library at SIU Medicine (801 N. Rutledge).
