Statistics show that many Jefferson County families are affected by Alzheimer’s Disease. This is a FREE informational and educational session open to anyone interested in or affected by Alzheimer’s Disease. It will cover what to watch for in yourself and others, the difference between normal aging and Alzheimer’s Disease, common warning signs, the importance of early detection and the benefits of diagnosis, and resources which are available. Refreshments will be provided.
The group will also discuss whether there is interest in starting a support group again in Jefferson County for caregivers who are coping with Alzheimer’s Disease. Anyone who is interested in a support group but unable to attend should call Lana Likens at (402) 729-6855 to express your interest in a support group.
