The Alzheimer’s Association, Greater New Jersey Chapter will present part I of a two-part program, Living with Alzheimer’s: For Caregivers of Early Stage Individuals, on January 29, 2013 (part I) from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at The Library of the Chathams, 214 Main Street, Chatham.
Program Description: Early-stage Alzheimer’s is the beginning stage of the disease when changes in memory, thinking, and communication become noticeable. Individuals may have difficulty completing complex tasks and require more time to complete normal daily tasks. Family caregivers can adjust to living with Alzheimer’s disease through an understanding of early-stage symptoms, making adaptations in daily living routines and roles, and planning for future changes and needs. This program will offer information for caregivers about adjusting to the diagnosis, developing a care team, accessing community support and resources, and making legal, financial, and safety plans for the future.
There is no fee for attending this program, however, seating is limited. For registration and more information, please contact the Alzheimer’s Association at 973.586.4300.
