Join us for a special educational seminar - A Dinner with the Doctor Program Thursday, September 17, 2015

09/02/2015

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.
