Celebrating the holidays, while caring for a loved one who has Alzheimer’s disease, will be the topic of a program at SAGE Eldercare on November 16.
The free program will be presented by Alzheimer’s New Jersey. “Changes brought on by Alzheimer’s disease can impact how families celebrate the holidays,” said Alzheimer’s New Jersey Program Outreach Director Laura Hawkins, MSW, LSW. “This program will highlight ways to modify meaningful traditions, celebrate away from home, and cope with caregiver stress.”
The program will take place 7 – 8 pm on Wednesday, November 16 at SAGE Eldercare, 290 Broad Street, Summit. To register, or for more information, please call: 908.598.5548 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
