CARES Dementia Care for Families Experts

CARES Dementia Care for Families was funded in part by a grant from the National Institute on Aging and was developed in conjunction with the national office of the Alzheimer’s Association and a national team of experts.

HealthCare Interactive would like to thank the many families and dementia experts for helping to educate other caregivers by agreeing to participate and be videotaped in this program. We respect the sensitive nature of this material and appreciate the support of everyone involved.
