Alzheimer's Program Leads More Professionals to Get Involved

The Hon. Louraine Arkfeld

In April of 2016, I was chair of the Senior Lawyer’s Division and we held our Spring Meeting in Tempe, Arizona. One reason for that was that Tempe has been designated as one of the pilot Dementia Friendly Communities. Our programming for the Spring Meeting was on Alzheimer’s and dementia issues from the current state of the medical research and legal issues for families facing Alzheimer’s to coping mechanisms for families and what it means to be a Dementia Friendly community. In line with our commitment to help both lawyers and American families, we invited the community along with lawyers to attend this day-long program. This program has led to additional training and involvement in this critical issue.
