Fireside Chats

Our Fireside Chats are based on ADRD, age-friendly health systems and dementia-friendly communities topics and are held at our community partners' (Legacy Retirement Communities, Avalon Health Care, Mission Health Services, Cascades Healthcare, Community Nursing Services) facilities. These chats are open to the community and are designed to offer both in-person and remote access to the presentations using audio web-based technology. The Fireside Chats are held on the first Thursday of each month at 10 a.m. MT. Please check our events calendar to see when the next Fireside Chat will be held. The event on the calendar will also contain the link to join the Fireside Chat remotely. For help with Zoom videoconferencing click HERE

The Time for Living and Caring (TLC) research study at the University of Utah is seeking family caregivers to persons with Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementia.  We are looking for ADRD caregivers who want and deserve to have more consistent respite time - and who are willing to try-out and provide feedback about an online coaching resource we created to help caregivers get more benefit from their respite.  Please circulate the attached flier to potential participants or reach out to the TLC research office, This email address is being protected from spambots.
