Understanding Alzheimer’s and Dementia
January 25 at 12:00 p.m.
Alzheimer’s is not normal aging. It’s a disease of the brain that causes problems with memory, thinking, and behavior. Join us to learn about the impact of Alzheimer’s, the difference between Alzheimer’s and dementia, disease stages and risk factors, current research, and treatments to address some symptoms, and Alzheimer’s Association resources.
10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s
February 22 at 12:00 p.m.
Alzheimer’s and other dementias cause changes in memory, thinking, and behavior that interfere with daily life. Join us to learn about 10 common warning signs and what to watch for in yourself and others, typical age-related changes, how to approach someone about memory concerns, early detection, the benefits of a diagnosis and the diagnostic process, and Alzheimer’s Association resources.
Effective Communication Strategies
March 29 at 12:00 p.m.
In this session, we will teach caregivers to decode verbal and behavioral communication by someone with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Participants leave with strategies for meaningful connection with people in early, middle, and late-stage dementia.
