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 bi-monthly on Thursdays 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.
