November is National Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month and National Family Caregivers Month. In addition to the ongoing programs and full agenda to offer support, the Alzheimer's Association Michigan Chapter is doing more to help Michigan families affected by the disease.
Alzheimer’s Association support groups, education programs, and social engagement programs offer emotional and social support, provide much-needed information about memory loss and dementia, and help persons with dementia and their care partners find ways to remain socially active.
The group will be hosting another Dementia Super Saturday Series on November 14, covering the following topics virtually:
● 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s, 10-11 a.m.
● Dementia Conversations: Driving, Doctor Visits, Legal & Financial Planning, 11 a.m.-noon
● Lunch + Enjoying Family Celebrations: Tip for Caregivers, noon-12:30 p.m.
● Effective Communication Strategies, 12:30-1:30 p.m.
Participants may register for all of the above programs or fewer if desired at bit.ly/dementiasupersaturdayNov20 or by calling the Alzheimer’s Association 24/7 Helpline at 800.272.3900.
