Alzheimer's Association Education Programs Set at Collinwood Rec Center
The Alzheimer's Association and the Collinwood Recreation Center, 16300 Lakeshore Blvd., are offering two free public education events in May. Both events will be held at the Collinwood Rec Center from 9 a.m to 10 a.m.
Join us May 3 for Understanding Alzheimer's and Dementia and learn about the impact of Alzheimer's, the difference between Alzheimer's and dementia, current research, available treatments and Alzheimer's Association care and support resources. Then join us on May 10 for Understanding and Responding to Dementia-Related Behaviors to learn how to decode behavioral messages, identify common behavior triggers and learn strategies to help intervene with some of the most common behavioral challenges of Alzheimer's disease.
