Education Committee

The Glenner Memory Care Centers Education Committee’s mission is to develop public programs that serve our senior population with memory disorders.

The 2012-13 primary goal for the committee is to create self-sustaining, practical programs to meet the needs of our senior populations, particularly those who have begun to show symptoms or been diagnosed with a memory impairment such as Alzheimer’s disease.
