Workshops to help those affected by Alzheimer's
The Alzheimer's Association West Virginia Chapter is offering a series of free community workshops for persons newly diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, their caregivers and family members. The first of three in the Living with Alzheimer's workshop series will be held at 2 p.m. Monday at 1601 2nd Ave.
The Living with Alzheimer's Program is a three-part series: Understanding the Basics, Resource Building and Dealing with the Changes on March 10, 17 and 24. The workshop is an opportunity for individuals - regardless of age - who have recently received an Alzheimer's diagnosis to remain active while sharing experiences with others who are living with the early stages of Alzheimer's disease. At the conclusion of the series, participants will have the opportunity to become involved in Early Stage Support Groups in their local communities.
An RSVP is required by calling 800-272-3900 and a brief consultation will be conducted prior to entrance in the program. For more information, a complete listing of all community workshops can be found at www.alz.org/wv.
