Living With Alzheimer's Series
Each Tuesday from Noon to 1 p.m. beginning February 2, 2021
The needs of a person living with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers change as the disease progresses. Not every experience is the same, but their are shared symptoms, challenges and situations.
Our eight-part series for caregivers navigates the progression of the disease from early conversations about driving and safety through coping with end-of-life decisions.
Attendance is not mandatory at each session, however it is recommended. You must register for each session separately.
