The 2019 McGinty Conference on Alzheimer’s—Caregiving: The Ultimate Balancing Act is Oregon’s leading research and education event, highlighting Alzheimer’s and other dementias.

Family and professional caregivers are invited to attend educational workshops and learn more about local resources. Some of this year's feature presentations include experiencing connection and daily reprieve, balancing autonomy with safety and wellbeing, latest in Alzheimer's research, and emergency preparedness.

Dr. Keith Fargo, senior director of Medical and Scientific Operations at the Alzheimer's Association will share the latest and greatest in Alzheimer’s and dementia-related research.

The first 250 Oregon Family caregivers to register will receive free admission, thanks to Oregon Care Partners.
