When a family member has Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia, the holidays can be full of stress. Learn to make the season more positive for you and your loved one at “Holiday Hints for Caregivers,” on Wednesday, December 3 from 3:00 to 5:00 pm. This free program is sponsored by Burke and Casserly, and will be held at the William K. Sanford Public Library on Albany Shaker Road in Colonie. To register, call the library at 518-810-0314.
