Jervis offers ‘Dementia Conversations’ program May 7
Jervis Public Library, 613 N. Washington St., will host the Central New York Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association’s program, “Dementia Conversations,” at 4 p.m. Monday, May 7.
The program will be held in the library’s fourth floor accessible auditorium and is free.
According to the Alzheimer’s Association, “Dementia Conversations” is not a traditional dementia education program.
Rather than teaching about the changes that come with an Alzheimer’s or dementia diagnosis, the program focuses on how family members and friends can have effective conversations with someone who either has Alzheimer’s or another type of dementia or shows signs of cognitive decline.
The program provides strategies to discuss obtaining a diagnosis, driving, and legal and financial matters. This interactive workshop features videos of people with Alzheimer’s disease and leading experts sharing tips on how to have these discussions.
Reservations are required by calling 315-617-4025, ext. 100. For more information about Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, and memory loss, visit the association’s website at www.alz.org, or ask a librarian for assistance at the library’s Information Desk.
