HAPPENING TONIGHT: First of two free programs on Alzheimer’s tonight

Posted

ROME — Jervis Public Library, 613 N. Washington St., will host two programs presented by the Central New York Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association, including one tonight — “Understanding Alzheimer’s and Dementia” — at 6 p.m. in the library’s accessible auditorium.

The second program, “Managing Money: A Caregiver’s Guide to Finances,” will take place at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 17.

Both hour-long programs are free and open to the public. Reservations are required and can be made by calling 315-472-4201, ext. 227.

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, “Understanding Alzheimer’s and Dementia” covers the basics of Alzheimer’s and dementia, explores the relationship between Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, examines what happens in a brain affected by Alzheimer’s, and details the risk factors for and three general stages of the disease.

The program also identifies federally-approved treatments available for symptom management, looks ahead to what is on the horizon for Alzheimer’s research, and offers helpful Alzheimer’s Association resources.

“Managing Money: A Caregiver’s Guide to Finances,” according to the Alzheimer’s Association, will help participants learn about managing someone else’s finances, how to prepare for future care costs and the benefits of early planning.
