Enjoy a free lunch with your friends and peruse dozens of exhibit booths where you can pick up valuable information and register for door prizes.

Keynote speaker, Kari Berit, will present “Forget Less, Remember More.”

Ever forget where you put your car keys? That’s normal. Forgetting what car keys are…not normal. What is the difference between normal aging and memory loss? Arm yourself with the facts about your brain and reduce your worries. We’ll explore how the human brain works and what it needs to stay healthy. And you’ll try Aerobics of the Mind and discover how fun, simple activities can help you think more clearly and forget less.

Kari Berit is a speaker in the field of aging and family caregiving. She speaks nationwide, addressing professionals and families who crave emotional support and a down-to-earth approach to the issues of family and professional caregiving.
