As part of our commitment to community education, Home Care Assistance developed the Healthy Longevity Webinar Series to empower people to be proactive and informed when it comes to their long-term health by featuring a variety of experts in health and wellness-related fields. In recognition of Alzheimer’s Awareness Month and Family Caregivers Month, the next installment in the series is entitled “Proven Ways to Care for Loved Ones with Alzheimer’s and Dementia and Yourself”, and will discuss proven and engaging ways to care for loved ones with Alzheimer’s and other dementias, as well as methods to protect your own health in the process.
The webinar will be presented by Kae Hammond, Founder and President of the Dementia Help Center, author of Pathways: A Guidebook for Dementia & Alzheimer’s Family Caregivers and host of “The Kae Hammond Show: Care for The Family Caregiver”. Kae Hammond is a certified National Alzheimer’s Association Facilitator, and since 2010, has led a weekly family caregiver support group, pro bono.
The hour-long webinar is Thursday, November 19th, at 10 AM Pacific/1 PM Eastern and will cover the following topics:
- Reasons for Memory ‘Glitches”
- It’s All About the “L’s” (Learn, Live, Link, Laugh, Listen, Love)
- Understanding the Disease(s)
- Caring for your Loved One
- Caring for Yourself: Physically, Mentally, Emotionally, Spiritually
- Sharing the Care
There are currently 47.5 million people living with dementia worldwide with numbers expected to triple by the year 2050, so the information presented in this webinar is extremely valuable as most people know someone affected.

As part of our broader approach to community education around brain health, Home Care Assistance joined the Alzheimer’s Association’s Alzheimer’s Workplace Alliance, a group of nearly 2,000 leading companies supporting Alzheimer’s and dementia caregivers in the workplace. We are dedicated to providing educational tools to support those suffering from Alzheimer’s and the family members who care for them.
To this end, we wrote Mind Over Gray Matter, the fifth book in our award-winning Healthy Longevity Book Series, to help friends and family members support a loved one with Alzheimer’s or dementia. Home Care Assistance has also developed the Cognitive Therapeutics Method™, an activities-based cognitive intervention program scientifically developed to promote brain health as well as delay the onset and slow the progression of cognitive decline.
