The Department of Aging and Disabilities announces May 2024 Caregiver Educational Workshops

Annapolis, MD (April 25, 2024) - On Wednesday, May 1st, at 6:30 p.m., attorney Lindsey Moss will present “Legal and Financial Advance Planning." It is normal to feel overwhelmed by the details of legal and financial planning but creating a plan for your future can be empowering and ensure your wishes are met. The sooner you establish your legal plans, the better prepared you and your family will be. This workshop will be held at the Pascal Senior Activity Center, 125 Dorsey Road, Glen Burnie.

On Thursday, May 16th, at 6:30 pm, Jennifer FitzPatrick will present "Stop Asking How Their Day Went." When someone has dementia, asking questions like, “How was your day, Mom?” is often counterproductive. Join us for this interactive program on what to say to someone you love who has dementia and how to establish and maintain more meaningful connections. This program is particularly helpful for those who are visiting their loved ones in senior living communities or at another person’s home. This workshop will be held at the Annapolis Senior Activity Center, 119 S. Villa Avenue, Annapolis.

You can register for these workshops online at or call 410-222-4339 or 410-222-4377.  

On Thursday, May 23rd at 6:30 pm, an in-person Dementia Live® workshop will be held at the North County/Hein Office Building (7320 Ritchie Highway, Glen Burnie). The Dementia Live® workshop is a high-impact dementia simulation experience that immerses participants into life with dementia, resulting in a deeper understanding of what it is like to live with cognitive impairment and sensory changes. The workshop will be held at the North County Office/Hein Building at 7320 Ritchie Highway, Glen Burnie. You can register for this workshop by calling 410-222-4339 or 410-222-4377. Space is limited.

These workshops are presented at no cost to the public through the National Family Caregiver Support Program of the Anne Arundel County Department of Aging and Disabilities.
