The Alzheimer’s Association, in partnership with Community Caregivers, Bright Horizons Adult Day Services and the Guilderland YMCA, is presenting an Alzheimer’s Education Workshop Series.
All sessions, which are free to attend, will be held at the Guilderland YMCA, 250 Winding Brook Drive in Guilderland                             from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. on the following Tuesdays: August 15th, August 22nd, and August 29th.                                Please register for one or more sessions by calling Tonya at 518-967-4999, extension 200.

 

Week One: August 15th
The Basics of Memory Loss, Dementia, and Alzheimer’s Disease

This program is designed to provide basic information that everyone needs to know about memory loss issues and what they mean for all of us. It explores the difference between memory loss brought about by normal aging versus Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. The appropriate audience for this session is anyone interested in learning more about Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.

 

Week Two: August 22nd
Understanding and Responding to Dementia Related Behavior

Behavior is a powerful form of communication and is one of the primary ways for people with dementia to communicate their needs and feelings as the ability to use language is lost. However, some behaviors can present real challenges for caregivers to manage. Attendees will learn 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.

 

Week Three: August 29th
Recognizing and Coping with Caregiver Stress

This program discusses what causes stress for individuals who care for someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia. Topics covered include how to handle the stress of caregivers effectively. The appropriate audience for this session is anyone who is actively caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia or knows someone who is a caregiver.
