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.

In the United States, more than 13 million women are either living with Alzheimer’s or caring for someone who has it. During Women’s History Month join us to:
  • Discover how women are disproportionately impacted by Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Identify lifestyle factors which can help to reduce risk.
  • Review research findings including updates from the 2020 Alzheimer’s Association International Conference.

We will be joined by Dr. Margaret Reece, PhD, Community Educator for the Central New York Chapter; and Elizabeth Smith-Boivin, MSHSA, Executive Director for the Alzheimer's Association, Northeastern New York Chapter.
