The Smaltz Foundation produces symposiums and seminars to bring relevant information to caregivers. We support and uplift families and caregivers with needed information about the disease, education on resources, and support systems that are in place through private organizations and government programs. Each November, in observation of National Caregivers Month, the foundation produces an informational symposium designed for family caregivers and the practitioners who assist and support them. The symposiums offer expert resources from varied business, associations, and governmental support agencies to help with caregiver solutions, legal needs, financial information and other critical support systems that are needed when caring for a person with Alzheimer’s.
The Smaltz Foundation partners with leading community organizations such as Harlem Hospital Center and The Studio Museum of Harlem to bring together an impressive group of leading experts, researchers, policy makers and caregivers to discuss and examine the public health crisis of Alzheimer’s.
Alzheimer’s is a disease that is slow and progressive. As the loved one is more affected it demands more of the caregiver. It is estimated that over 18.2 billion of unpaid hours are worked by caregivers each year. The Smaltz Foundation recognizes that they need help, support and respite. We can use your help in continuing the support of families.
