Alzheimer training planned
Central Susquehanna River Valley families are invited to attend free Alzheimer's CARE training workshops that will be offered in recognition of World Alzheimer's Month.
The sessions will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Sept. 17, Sept. 24, Oct. 9 and Oct.16 at the Home Instead Senior Care offices in Lewisburg and in Williamsport.
Developed by Home Instead Senior Care, the Alzheimer's or Other Dementias CARE program incorporates an innovative, hands-on approach to help families deal with the difficult behavioral changes that often are associated with Alzheimer's disease or other dementias.
During the workshop, program experts will teach caregivers how to manage behaviors, encourage engagement and care for themselves while caring for their loved one.
To reserve a spot, call Home Instead Senior Care at 522-6533 or (866)522-6533 for the Lewisburg sessions; 601-4286 or (855)601-4286 for the Williamsport sessions.
