The Northern Virginia Dementia Care Consortium has been educating caregivers since 1986. This year’s conference keynote speaker is Gary Chapman, PhD, author of "Keeping Love Alive as Memories Fade: The 5 Languages and the Alzheimer’s Journey."

Join us to become better prepared to provide care and support at home or in a facility, learn new ways to engage individuals with dementia, and visit with exhibitors who offer supportive services.

This conference is open to family caregivers, volunteers working with older adults, and professionals in aging and related services.
