The ABC’s of Alzheimer’s disease
a childrens’ presentation

Do you want your child or grandchild to learn more about Alzheimer’s disease?

Alzheimer’s disease affects all members of the family – even children. Children recognize the changes Alzheimer’s brings about in a family member and it can be especially confusing. The ABC’s of Alzheimer’s Disease is a free presentation that introduces children to the disease and provides them with a safe environment to ask questions and explore their feelings.

This fun and interactive presentation:

  • Discusses what happens to someone who has Alzheimer’s disease
  • Identifies common feelings experienced by children who have a family member with Alzheimer’s disease
  • Includes an Activity and Learning book along with a box of crayons

A concurrent meeting for adults is offered to enhance the experience and discussion.
