In collaboration with the Alzheimer’s Association Massachusetts-New Hampshire Chapter, JF&CS’ biennial symposium will focus on community-level changes to improve livability for individuals and families affected by Alzheimer’s or a related disorder. Gary Glazner, John McFadden and Susan McFadden will guide us in exploring best practices from around the U.S. and the world, and considering adaptations appropriate to our region. Secretary of Elder Affairs Alice Bonner will offer opening remarks.  Professionals from all sectors as well as those personally affected by dementia are invited to take part in this day of learning and dialogue. Followed by a special JF&CS Memory Café on November 13, featuring Gary Glazner, founding director of the Alzheimer’s Poetry Project. Contact Beth Soltzberg, bsoltzberg@jfcsboston.org, 781-693-5628.
