2019 Alzheimer's Conference
On June 1st, 2019, the South Sound Alzheimer’s Council officially became a member of the National Alzheimer’s Association.
Memory Care at The Lodges has always supported SSAC and now in turn, we support the Alzheimer’s Association. The new local organization is the South Sound Regional Advisory Council (of the Alzheimer’s Association, WA State Chapter).
This past May, the SSAC held its last Conference (acting independently of the Alzheimer’s Association) with support from the Association. The Westwood Baptist Church was the venue this past year and we were fortunate to have a speaker from the University of Washington as our Keynote Speaker, Dr. Emily Trittschuh, PhD. The event also included a Dementia Q & A in addition to Legal and Financial Planning education for Long Term Care. Complimentary breakfast & lunch were included in the $20 price of admission to the conference. Around 25 businesses (including The Lodges) sponsored this day and offered resources and information for participants.
The Annual Alzheimer’s Conference for 2020 will once again be held at the Westwood Baptist Church in West Olympia on May 15th . Go to www.alz.org to register.
