The Aging and Disability Resource Center of the Wolf River Region, in conjunction with the Alzheimer’s Association, is offering three free education programs at the ADRC office, 229 Van Buren St., Oconto Falls.
On Tuesday, Jan. 17, the topic will be “Dementia Conversations: Driving, Doctor Visits, Legal and Financial Planning.” Participants will learn how to have honest and caring conversations when someone begins to show signs of Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.
The presentation on Tuesday, Feb. 21, will be “Know the 10 Signs.” The warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease are often dismissed as side effects of normal aging. This training shares the 10 warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease, separates myth from reality and addresses commonly held fears.
The presentation on Tuesday, March 21, will be “The Basics: Memory Loss, Dementia and Alzheimer’s.” Participants will learn about detection, causes, risk factors, stages and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease.
