Rowan County held the second annual dementia conference on April 3, 2018 and featured some fantastic speakers. Melanie Bunn (pictured in the middle with Renee and TenderHearted’s Tracey Barbee), who works with Teepa Snow, renowned dementia expert, was a featured speaker. She delighted the group with laughter and shared critical information for those caring for someone with dementia.
Also featured was world renowned, Gary Chapman (pictured with Renee), author of many books; the most widely known is his book, The Five Love Languages. He shared about his new book, Keeping Love Alive as Memories Fade, connecting us with the Alzheimer’s Journey.
Also speaking was a local elder care lawyer, Marjorie Brown of Concord. She shared about estate planning and financial matters for future planning on care for those with dementia.
Many vendors were on hand to answer questions and provide support and information for the attendees.
