LIVING IN THE MOMENT– 
Person Center Dementia Care Conference

Summer 2016

Thank you to all attendees, sponsors, and the entire ElderConsult team for your participation in our Living in the Moment—Person Centered Care Conference! We were honored to have so many attend and appreciate your participation, attention and feedback. We are planning another conference for the summer of 2016, and in the meantime, please help us help other families and elder care professionals by asking questions or commenting in ElderConsult's Community Chat on our website on our Facebook page. We will answer you as quickly as possible, and you may help many others with your questions. Our goal is to provide education on the difficult topic of dementia, and we need your questions to start the educational conversation.
