Alzheimer’s Educational Conference
A Life After The Diagnosis

Bestselling Author Gail Sheehy Discusses
“Passages in Caregiving”



(West Palm Beach, FL, May 15, 2011)—Spanning two days, the 2011 Alzheimer’s Educational Conference attracted nearly 1,000 caregivers and health care professionals to the Palm Beach County Convention Center who heard from renowned experts in the field of Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders.  Speakers addressed a wide variety of topics including the latest research, legal considerations, long-term care issues, caregiver wellness and caregiving techniques.

The highlight of the Conference was Friday’s keynote address by bestselling author Gail Sheehy, who discussed the caregiver’s journey, gleaned from her 17 years of caring for her husband.  Award-winning journalist and advocate for caregivers, Sheehy, spoke of her personal challenges navigating the labyrinth of caregiving options and included inspirational stories of families who she met along the way.  Ms. Sheehy’s presentation discussed the human aspects of caregiving along with practical and creative strategies helpful to anyone facing this inevitable journey.  “I had nine months to prepare for the birth of my child, and about nine hours to prepare for the dependence of my husband,” stated Sheehy.  “I had a new role—caregiver—again.  We’re all going to have this role.  This is the big passage for Boomers today.”

Other featured speakers included Clinical Chief and Director of Geriatric Services at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Dr. Juergen Bludau, Scripps Research Insitute Neuroscience Chairman, Dr. Ron Davis and national advocate for younger-onset Alzheimer’s disease and caregiver, Laura Jones.  During the two-day conference, there were a total of 40 presentations spanning topics of interest to both caregivers and health care professionals.

The Grand Benefactor of the 2011 Alzheimer’s Educational Conference is The Sydelle and Arthur Meyer Foundation.  Other sponsors include the Sydney Goldstein Charitable Foundation, Arden Courts Memory Care Community, JFK Medical Center Foundation and Alzheimer’s Foundation of America.  Conference
Co-Chairs are Amy Dean and Tenna Wiles.

The mission of Alzheimer's Community Care is to promote and provide specialized, quality, compassionate care within a community-based environment to patients and caregivers living with Alzheimer's disease and related disorders.
