When someone is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, friends and family have many questions. What does the diagnosis mean? What kinds of plans need to be made? What resources are available to help? As the disease progresses, new questions reflect growing needs for skills, programs and services.
The Alzheimer’s Association of Northeastern New York, in partnership with Albany Guardian Society and The Eddy's Marjorie Doyle Rockwell Center, is proud to once again present a program series for caregivers.
Living With Alzheimer’s for Caregivers is a 3-part series of education programs that provide answers to the questions that arise in the early, middle and late stages of the disease. Hear from those directly affected and learn what you need to know, what you need to plan and what you can do at each point along the way.
Programs will be held at Albany Guardian Society, 14 Corporate Woods Blvd.,Suite102, Albany, NY, 3:30 – 5:30pm
Topics covered will include:
• Developing a care team
• Legal and financial planning
• Coping strategies
• Care and treatment options
• Communicating and connecting
• Maximizing independence
There is no cost, but registration is required. (Caregivers may attend all sessions or only those sessions that best meet the needs of their specific situation.)
