Living with Alzheimer's and Other Dementias
May 22, 2019

Monday, June 3, 2019 at 6:30 pm at the Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital–Needham, The New Outpatient Clinical Center Conference Suites, Floor 2, 148 Chestnut Street, Needham.

Living with or caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or other dementia can be difficult, especially on the relationships in your life. This workshop will show a brief documentary about a couple living with Alzheimer’s, followed by a panel discussion that will address signs and symptoms, strategies for living with dementia, strategies for caregivers, and resources where you can turn for help. The session will end with a guided meditation and instructions for at-home meditation, an excellent stress relieving tool for caregivers. This workshop is free of charge and open to the public. We hope you will join us!

We ask that you RSVP so we know how many to plan for. Please RSVP to Dover COA at 508-315-5734 or via email at coa@doverma.org, or to Needham COA at 781-455-7555.
