Finding Your Way as a Family Caregiver

Presented by Dr. Carolyn Clevenger, Founder and Director of the Emory Integrated Memory Care practice

Caregiving for a person living with dementia can make you feel like you are in a maze of systems and services, making it difficult to find your way. Join Dr. Clevenger for a presentation on an upcoming program-under-study, CAN-DO, which follows three families as they learn to navigate the healthcare system, the legal system, financial system, and their family systems.

We gratefully acknowledge Dogwood Health Trust for their support of our program!
