Summer 2021 Educational Series

Starting on September 9, MemoryCare will be providing an educational series designed for caregivers to learn more about how to care for themselves and their loved one affected by dementia. These courses will be live-broadcast for online attendance only to ensure they are safely accessible during this time of isolation due to COVID-19. MemoryCare is grateful for the ability to offer these courses in a tele-education format as a result of funding from grants through The Duke Endowment, The Cannon Foundation and The Leverage Fund of the Dogwood Health Trust along with additional funds from private donors.

Courses are free, open to the public, and will be presented as a live online broadcast. See the corresponding course below to register. Contact our office at 828-771-2219 or with any questions.
