Educational programs offered by the Eastern North Carolina Chapter:

  • Know the 10 Signs: Early Detection Matters: The warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease are often dismissed as normal aging. If you or someone you know is experiencing memory loss or behavioral changes, it’s time to learn the facts. Hear from people who have the disease and learn how to recognize the 10 warning signs of Alzheimer's in yourself and others.
  • The Basics: Memory Loss, Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease: Alzheimer’s is not a normal part of aging. This program provides information on detection, causes and risk factors, stages of the disease, treatment and how the Alzheimer’s Association can help.
  • Dementia Conversations: Learn about information and tips on how to have honest and caring conversations with family members about deciding when to stop driving, going to the doctor and making legal and financial plans.
  • Understanding and Responding to Dementia-Related Behaviors: Behavior is one of the primary ways people with dementia communicate as the ability to use language is lost, however; some behaviors can present real challenges for caregivers to manage. Join us to learn to decode behavioral messages, identify common behavior triggers, and learn strategies to help intervene with some of the most common behavioral challenges of Alzheimer’s. 
  • Effective Communication Strategies: As people with Alzheimer’s progress in their journey and the ability to use words is lost, families need new ways to connect. Join us to explore how communication takes place when someone has Alzheimer’s, learn to decode the verbal and behavioral messages delivered by someone with dementia and identify strategies to help you connect and communicate at each stage of the disease.
  • Healthy Habits for a Healthier You: We've always known that the health of the brain and the body are connected. Now, science is able to provide insights into how to optimize our physical and cognitive health as we age. Join us to learn about research in the areas of diet and nutrition, exercise, cognitive activity and social engagement and how to incorporate these into a plan for healthy aging.
  • Living with Alzheimer's - For Younger Onset: When someone under 65 is diagnosed with younger-onset Alzheimer’s, the first reaction is often shock or denial. Join us for this series of programs that provide answers to the questions that arise for people concerned about younger-onset Alzheimer’s. Hear from those directly affected and learn what you need to know, how to plan and what you can do to ease the impact throughout the course of the disease.
  • Living with Alzheimer’s - For Caregivers: In the early stage of Alzheimer’s, families face questions as they adjust. What does the diagnosis mean? What kinds of plans need to be made? What resources are available to help? Hear practical answers to these questions from those affected and learn what you can do to cope with the changes that come with an early-stage diagnosis.
  • Living with Alzheimer’s - For People with Alzheimer's: The diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease is life-changing and leads to many questions. In this three-part program for people with Alzheimer’s, you will hear from others who have been where you are and will learn what you need to know to navigate this chapter of your life.
