Changes are normal with aging, but some can be a sign of problems, and some of them can be corrected. So early detection of problems with memory or thinking can help improve quality of life for loved ones and family alike.
This free one hour talk will discuss the differences between age-related memory loss and Alzheimer’s disease, along with other possible indicators of dementia. The class includes videos of persons living with dementia and their families, and will discuss fears and myths about Alzheimer’s disease.
There will be extensive information within the class material, and also as handouts, on where and how to get support and help in dealing with all aspects of living with dementia.
All are welcome. Holy Faith’s Social Hall has plenty of parking, no steps, wide doors, and plenty of seating.
In partnership with the Michigan Great Lakes Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association, and with financial support from EHM Senior Solutions, this free class is offered as a community service by Saline’s Holy Faith Church.
It is part of Holy Faith’s 11 week dementia awareness program, In This Together, offering talks on dementia related topics every Wednesday evening at 7 through July 17. For a full schedule go to www.Holy-faith-church-org.
