ALZI will be hosting our 2nd National level Conference this September 2022 which will runas a hybrid event with both in-person and virtual attendees. The conference will feature webinar sessions, a mix of live and recorded parallel sessions, offline seminars & offline workshops.
This global health problem demands a comprehensive & multidisciplinary approach, from preventive public health efforts to promote risk reduction and healthy lifestyle to incorporating person-centered care in the process of diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation, caregiving both in facilities and at home. It is also of utmost importance to provide timely support from the time of diagnosis to prepare People with Dementia (PWD) and their caregivers so that they are able to plan for, respond to and manage the situation at home, or work with community partners for suitable care interventions.
