More than 16 million Americans provide unpaid care for people with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. An estimated 5.8 million Americans live with Alzheimer’s, and that number is climbing. How can churches respond? How can churches equip caregivers? What can churches do to be more welcoming of those with dementia?

The Committee on Older Adult Ministry is partnering with Discipleship Ministries to produce a webinar series to explore these questions. Join experts in this field for this four-part webinar series taking place in the first quarter of 2020.
