The health and safety of our volunteers and all of our constituents are our top priority as we continue to pursue our mission.

Dementia Care 2020, the annual conference for caregivers of individuals with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia, originally planned for May 20 at the Holiday Inn–Syracuse/Liverpool, on Electronics Parkway in Liverpool, has been rescheduled to Wednesday, November 4, 2020 at the hotel.
Dementia Care 2020 is the ninth annual Alzheimer’s Association conference for informal family caregivers of individuals living with dementia in Central New York. The conference’s goal since its first day has been to empower caregivers with practical solutions. This has been the guiding principle in every decision made about the event, from the speakers and session topics to little things like how the conference manual is designed.
NEW FOR 2020! Thanks to a grant from the New York State Department of Health, we have lowered the cost of attendance to $25 per person. Your registration fee includes access to all sessions, the interactive expo, a conference manual, continental breakfast and lunch.
A full schedule of events, including program descriptions and speaker information, is available on the event page at alz.org.
