Alzheimer's training workshop set for Sept. 19 and 26
Franklin and Columbia area families are invited to attend free Alzheimer’s CARE training workshops that will be offered in recognition of World Alzheimer’s Month. The sessions will be held on Thursday, Sept. 19, and Thursday, Sept. 26, from 5-7 p.m. at the Home Instead Senior Care office in Franklin.
Developed by Home Instead Senior Care, the Alzheimer’s or Other Dementias CARE program incorporates an innovative, hands-on approach to help families deal with the difficult behavioral changes that often are associated with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias.
During the workshop, program experts will teach caregivers how to:
· Manage behaviors
· Encourage engagement
· Care for themselves while caring for their loved one
