Dementia Dialogues (R)

Dementia Dialogues (R) offers expert guidance for professional and lay caregivers. The FREE course is five two-hour sessions developed and licensed by the University of South Carolina.  Basic funding comes from a grant by the Department of Health and Human Services through the Office for the Study of Aging, and USC’s Arnold School of Public Health.

Dementia Dialogues can only be presented by certified instructors; Memory Matters has two instructors. Memory Matters does not receive any funds to present this program to the community; our presenters’ salaries are underwritten by our generous donors.
