The Alzheimer’s Association will discuss the basics of memory loss, dementia, and Alzheimer’s during a free program held at SAGE Eldercare, 290 Broad Street, Summit, on March 8, 1 – 2:30 pm.
As the first in a three-part series, information will be provided about facts and myths regarding aging, Alzheimer’s disease, and dementia; common risk factors and causes; stages of the disease and current treatments; and dementia-related behavioral symptoms.
“We look forward to hosting the Greater New Jersey Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association to provide insight into dementia and Alzheimer’s, a topic important to SAGE’s mission of helping older adults and their caregivers,” said Angela Sullivan, Executive Director at SAGE.
There will also be Alzheimer’s Association-led discussions (“Dementia Conversations” and “Living with Alzheimer’s for Caregivers”) on April 12 and May 10, 7 – 8:30 pm. For more information or to register for the programs, please call: 908.598.5548 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
