Educational Programs - Hope for the Future

Alzheimer's Arkansas Hope for the Future

Hope for the Future is an annual caregiver symposium held in Little Rock through which Alzheimer’s Arkansas reaches out to caregivers across Arkansas. This daylong symposium provides family and professional caregivers with general information regarding Alzheimer’s disease and its progression; tools, knowledge, and techniques to improve caregiving skills; and information concerning resources available to caregivers and Alzheimer’s patients through vendor exhibits.

Caregivers, both family and professionals, attend from across Arkansas. Family caregivers attend free of charge, unless requesting continuing education credits. Reimbursement for respite care to allow family caregivers to attend the symposium is also available. There is a fee for professionals who attend. Continuing education credits (CEU's) are available for nurses, nursing home administrators, occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants, physical therapists, pharmacists, psychologists (may be awarded based on the Arkansas Psychology Board CEU Guidelines), emergency medical services, social workers, and certified nursing assistants.

Through programs like Hope for the Future, we are able to fulfill our mission statement which is to provide education and resources so that all Arkansans affected by Alzheimer’s are able to live with comfort and dignity until a cure is found.  Caregivers will be able to add new “tools” to their “caregiver toolbox” which can lead to improved care and quality of life for their loved ones as well as themselves.
