“Understanding Alzheimer’s and Related Dementia”
Alzheimer’s and the related dementias are not part of aging. If you or someone you know is affected by Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, it's time to learn the facts. This program provides information on, causes and risk factors, stages of the disease, treatment, and much more.
The diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease makes planning for the future more important than ever. Concerns about provisions and programs that can help offset cost mean that families need accurate information about legal and financial planning specific to the disease. This is an interactive program where you will have a chance to learn about legal and financial issues to consider, how to put a plan in place, and how to access legal and financial resources near you.
“Healthy Brain and Healthy Body”
For centuries, we’ve known that the health of the brain and the body are connected. But now, science is able to provide insight into how to make lifestyle choices that may help you keep your brain and body healthy as you age. Join us to learn about research in the areas of diet and nutrition, exercise, cognitive activity and social engagement, and use hands-on tools to help you incorporate these recommendations into a plan for healthy aging.
Please register online (firstname.lastname@example.org), in your Sunday school class, or in the family room by February 10th. The best way to support family and friends who are dealing with Alzheimer’s is to gain as much information as possible. We can then use that information in whatever situation we find ourselves to give help, understanding and encouragement.
