A 2-Part Webinar Series Co-Hosted by

The Eden Alternative® and the Dementia Action Alliance

 

You may not have heard yet, but there’s an international movement happening.  As the World Health Organization has stated, “people with dementia are frequently denied the basic rights and freedoms available to others.”  Around the world, people living with dementia and their care partners are demanding those human rights and freedoms and a very different future.  


Whether it’s unlocking the doors of a secured memory “unit” or creating dementia-inclusive cities, change is coming.  Are you ready for this shift?  It’s certainly a complex topic, one that requires much planning, thought and knowledge.  The time for learning and exploration is now.


In this very special 2-part webinar series presented by The Eden Alternative and the Dementia Action Alliance, you’ll hear from visionaries and experts who have studied and implemented this change, including the most important experts of all - individuals who are themselves living with dementia.
