Wednesday, Nov. 22, 2017 -- According to the Alzheimer's Association, one in eight people over the age of 65 suffer from Alzheimer's disease. With those troubling statistics, there’s a strong likelihood that you may meet someone suffering from Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia this holiday season.
On Wednesday, Nov. 29 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., The Meadows at Glenwyck, an independent senior living community located at 150 Dutch Meadows Lane (just behind WalMart) in Glenville, will host a presentation titled, “Holiday Hints for Caregivers.” Maura Fleming, Capital Region Education Manager, Alzheimer's Association Northeastern New York, will present.
“A diagnosis of dementia doesn’t have to mean a season filled with stress, disappointment and sadness,” said Fleming. “During this presentation, we will discuss things to keep in mind if you'll be visiting someone with Alzheimer's or dementia in the coming weeks. We will talk about how you and your family can learn how to manage expectations for gatherings and embrace the best moments of the season.”
The presentation is free and open to the public. Since seating is limited, reservations are required. Reserve your place by calling (518) 280-7340. Light refreshments will be served.
