Living with Alzheimer’s Disease for the Caregiver: Middle Stage

Part 1: Wednesday, March 12; 5:30 – 8:00 pm Part 2: Wednesday, March 19; 5:30 – 8:00 pm

In the middle stage of Alzheimer's disease or related dementia disorders, gaps in memory and thinking begin to make it more difficult for the individual to manage the day-to-day activities like dressing, bathing and eating without assistance. Personality, behavior and sleep patterns also continue to change. Caregivers assume greater responsibility in managing not only the personal care and finances of the individual, but also meeting the challenges of maintaining safety while creating a supportive environment.

During this 2-part program, caregivers will learn more about symptoms and care needs; techniques for managing behaviors and maximizing safety; relationship changes and supportive services available to help with the caregiving responsibilities.

A light dinner will be served.
