Join social workers from AFA’s helpline in a monthly, interactive forum over Zoom. These forums give busy caregivers and those impacted by dementia a weekend opportunity to get information and support concerning issues that are relevant to them. These forums will occur on the 3rd Saturday of each month.

• A discussion on the impact of alcohol use on those with Alzheimer’s and dementia-related illnesses 

• Things to consider if seeking treatment of alcohol use disorders for older adults with underlying dementia-related illnesses

• Strategies to prevent/reduce the frequency of loved ones drinking
