AGI’s Lassner Institute of Learning provides excellence in dementia education and training to family caregivers and professional care providers.

AGI’s Education Committee is always looking for – and finding – important information on dementia and Alzheimer’s disease to share with all those who contact us for services, guidance and information. We would like to take this opportunity to thank a very special cadre of volunteers, guest speakers and professional experts along with an outstanding staff for their ongoing dedication and support and their dedication to excellence.
