On Tuesday, November 5, 2013, caregivers, students and health
professionals gather for the
Annual Fall 5CE Conference,
“A Meaningful Life
with Alzheimer’s disease”
at the Vista
Tech Center at Schoolcraft Community College. The conference is
presented by the Alzheimer's Association - Greater Michigan Chapter and the Wayne State University, Institute of
Doors open at 7:30am with a continental breakfast provided. The opening
presentation of the conference begins at 8:30am with lunch provided at noon.
The conference will then draw to a close at 3:00pm.
Keynote Speaker for this year’s conference “A Meaningful Life
with Alzheimer's disease” is John Zeisel, PhD. Dr. John Zeisel is the internationally renowned author of “I’m Still Here.” He proves a theory that many of us who
love someone with Alzheimer’s have suspected: that the person who is changed by
the disease is still inside, waiting to be awakened and nurtured with love,
music, with paintings, and with poems, as well as one-on-one communication and
physical and mental exercises.
Caregivers may attend free of charge. The Alzheimer's Association is
