This June, in honor of Alzheimer's and Brain Awareness Month, Home Instead Senior Care has partnered up with The Orchard and The Alzheimer's Association to put four public education events! The events are free and open to the public - check out the topics and dates below.
The Basics: Memory Loss, Dementia and Alzheimer's Disease
Alzheimer's disease is not a normal part of aging. If you or someone you know is affected by Alzheimer's disease or dementia, it's time to learn the facts. This program provides information on detection, causes and risk factors, stages of the disease, treatment, and much more.
Thursday, June 2, 2016 | 5:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. | Northumberland Public Library: 7204 Northumberland Hwy., Heathsville, Va
Healthy Living for Your Brain and Body
For centuries, we've known that the health of the brain and the body are connected. But now, science is able to provide insights into how to make lifestyle choices that may help you keep your brain and body healthy as you age. Join us to learn about research in the areas of diet and nutrition, exercise, cognitive activity and social engagement, and use hands-on tools to help you incorporate these recommendations into a plan for healthy aging.
Thursday, June 9, 2016 | 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. | The Orchard – Magnolia Manor: 62 Delfae Drive, Warsaw, VA
Thursday, June 23, 2016 | 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. | Home Instead Senior Care: 1263 Tappahannock Blvd., Tappahannock, VA
Understanding and Responding to Dementia-related Behavior
Behavior is a powerful form of communication and is one of the primary ways for people with dementia to communicate their needs and feelings as the ability to use language is lost. However, some behaviors can present real challenges for caregivers to manage. Join us to learn to decode behavioral messages, identify common behavior triggers, and learn strategies to help intervene with some of the most common behavioral challenges of Alzheimer's disease.
Thursday, June 30, 2016 | 2:00 p.m.—3:00 p.m. | Home Instead Senior Care: 1263 Tappahannock Blvd., Tappahannock, VA
