Alzheimer’s disease is life changing for both the diagnosed individual,
as well as their families and caregivers. As the disease progresses, people
experience considerable changes with memory, abilities, judgement and
behavior. While there is no cure for Alzheimer’s, taking full advantage
of available treatment, care and support resources can help those affected
by the disease. This special
program will include an overview of Alzheimer’s disease and related
dementia disorders, including the diagnostic process, available medical
treatments, and care techniques. We will conclude the program with an
overview of helpful resources that are available to support both the caregiver,
as well as the person with the disease.
