Dear Friends,
                      Greetings from Nightingales Centre for Ageing & Alzheimer's !

Caregiving for elders suffering from dementia is not an easy task.  Caregivers need to understand and prepare for the caregiving role. Most often without help, the caregivers get tired and stressed and reach burnout.

Addressing to the above need, we are pleased to inform you that we are organizing a one-Day “Family Caregiver Training Program in Management of Dementia” on Saturday 16th June, 2012 (9:30 am to 5:30 pm)

The aim of the training program is to let you understand dementia and manage your loved ones suffering from Dementia in the best possible way.  It is carefully tailored to the needs of a family-based caregiver.
