FREE WORKSHOPS

The Basics of Alzheimer’s
1pm

Alzheimer’s disease is not a normal part of aging. If you or someone you know is affected by Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, it’s time to learn the facts.  Topics include:

  • Symptoms, causes & risk factors
  • Stages of the disease
  • Treatment and more

Ask the Doc
2pm

“Ask the Doc” is an interactive workshop that aims to help families communicate more effectively with their doctors.  Healthcare Practitioners from Women’s Health & Family Medicine will be available for a casual and informal conversation.  Participants may ask questions related to the healthcare needs of their loved ones.

Dementia Conversations
3pm

When someone is showing signs of dementia, it’s time to talk. Often, conversations with family about changing behaviors can be challenging and uncomfortable. This program provides tips for breaking the ice with your family so you can address some of the most common issues that are difficult to discuss: going to the doctor for a diagnosis or medical treatment, deciding when to stop driving, and making legal and financial plans for future care.
