Free Expert Alzheimers Advice for Family Caregivers

SYNERGY HomeCare Longest Day Alzheimer's Webinars for Family Caregivers

The Longest Day is held annually on the summer solstice. The duration of the sunrise to sunset event symbolizes the challenging journey those living with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers face daily. Teams are encouraged to create their own experience as they fundraise and participate in an activity they love in order to honor people facing this disease.

At SYNERGY HomeCare, we honor The Longest Day by hosting a full day of webinars to provide you and your support system the tools and resources needed to help you care for those living with Alzheimer's. Several of these webinars will also be beneficial to families whose lives have been impacted by age or illness.
