Solutions providers from social services, health care and technology sectors will be featured.

Persons living with dementia (including Alzhiemer's, Lewy Body, FTD, and others), caregivers, administrators and staff from care communities, Alzheimer/dementia care providers, dementia friendly community leaders, health care systems, elder abuse prevention efforts, elder care managers and attorneys, hospital emergency department staff and organizations directing care systems for persons dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid.
Community Solutions
