For those family members living with or caring for an older adult with Alzheimer’s disease, a special virtual education series seeks to share vital information about what to expect with the degenerative disease.
The Alzheimer’s Association is starting the new year with five special virtual sessions to help families be better prepared to meet the changes brought about by Alzheimer’s. Topics will cover the various stages of Alzheimer’s, as well as legal issues, financial aspects and the latest scientific advances being made.
The virtual education series will be accessible via Zoom and will allow participants to ask questions and communicate with other family members and caregivers facing some of the same challenges. The schedule includes five sessions:
- Jan. 12, 3:30 to 5 p.m. (CST) – Living with Alzheimer’s for Caregivers: Early Stage
- Jan. 19, 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. (CST) – New Advances in Alzheimer’s Treatments
- Jan. 26, 3:30 to 5 p.m. (CST) – Legal and Financial
- Feb. 9, 3:30 to 5 p.m. (CST) – Living with Alzheimer’s for Caregivers: Middle Stage
- Feb. 16, 3:30 to 5 p.m. (CST) – Living with Alzheimer’s for Caregivers: Late Stage
All sessions are hosted by the Alzheimer’s Association Iowa Chapter.
