An Education Program for Family Caregivers

All caregivers are invited to attend an informative presentation on Tuesday, March 11 at the Broome West Senior Center.

“Forgetfulness or Dementia?” will be presented by Rene Conklin of the Elder Services Center.

Dementia can be an overwhelming diagnosis. Many people avoid investigating symptoms, but there are over 70 diseases that can cause dementia. Rene will discuss why it’s important to obtain an accurate diagnosis in order to best treat dementia. She will also cover services the Elder Services Center provides to support caregivers and the memory-impaired person.

Pre-registration is suggested; call Caregiver Services at 778-2411 to register.
