When someone is diagnosed with Alzheimer's, friends and family have many questions. What does the diagnosis mean? What kinds of plans need to be made? What resources are available to help? As the disease progresses, new questions reflect growing needs for skills, programs and services. Alzheimer's for Caregivers is a series of educational programs that provide answers to the questions that arise in the various stages of the disease. Topics covered include developing a care team, legal and financial planning, coping strategies, care and treatment options, communicating and connecting, and maximizing independence. This three-part program will be held over the course of 3 days 11/4, 11/11 & 11/18.
