Caring For Loved Ones With Memory Loss
Wednesday April 30, 2014: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room
Do you have a family member or loved one who is experiencing loss of their memory? How do you comfort them? What should you do as a friend, family member or caretaker?
Join us for an informational session that will outline many strategies for care, including a focus on the individual’s abilities and what they are still able to do independently. The session will also cover how to incorporate past interests into care for your love one.
The event, co-sponsored by AADL and Glacier Hills Senior Living Community, will feature presenter Tammy Maggert, Director of Memory Care Service for Glacier Hills, and Sonja Wallace, Therapy Glacier Hills Memory Care Leader.
