Participant Testimonials:

"Great presentation. Even though my mother does not needs assistance now, this knowledge will help me prepare for the next part of my caregiver journey." "Great presentation. I thought I knew all about what was going to be presented. I am glad I came anyway, because I learned a lot." "Great information. It will help us plan for the future. As my mother's disease progresses, we will have good plan. Right now she can still tell us what she wants."
