Individuals caring for loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia know all too well the stress and isolation associated with their role. 

This program will offer caregivers, health care professionals, members of the clergy, and other community leaders the insight, tools, and resources they need to care for themselves and their loved ones. 

 


Participants will: 

•  Gain insights into non-pharmacological management of symptoms and behavior in those with later-stage Alzheimer’s. 
•  Discover ways to engage loved ones by drawing on life experiences and patient strengths. 
•  Identify available resources in the form of family, social, community, and faith-based networks of support.

Harold Federman, MD, Hospice Care Medical Director 

Kristen Bonistall, MS, LMSW, Care Consultant, Alzheimer’s Association Hudson Valley Chapter 

Pierina Bellamy, LMSW, Hospice Care Social Worker 

Caregivers Bryna Sarokin and Denise Gavin, who have both lived the journey and experienced the loss of a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease. 


Moderated by Curtis Au, LMSW, Hospice Care Social Worker
