WHAT SHOULD DEMENTIA CARE LOOK LIKE?

Thursday, November 14th at 2:30 - 3:30 p.m. Free and open to the public.

Presented by Stephen Bowman, President of Peregrine Senior Living & A Memory Care Provider. Stephen offers a vision of memory care that is often contrarian to many of our common industry strategies. There are over 6 million Americans today that have Alzheimer's and the numbers are growing. There is no cure on the horizon, and as a society, we have entirely overlooked creating a meaningful and compassionate model of care. This thoughtful presentation and discussion will help move us closer toward an answer. Refreshments provided.
