From press release:
Are you worried someone you love may have Alzheimer’s?
Learn the early warning signs for the disease, and what to do if you see these signs in a loved one, during a free workshop from the Alzheimer’s Association Western Carolina Chapter and The Ivey, the adult day care center in SouthPark.
The two non-profits will host “Know the 10 Signs of Alzheimer’s” on Tuesday, May 10. Choose from two times -- 2 to 4 pm, or 6 to 8 pm -- at The Ivey, 6030 Park South Drive. The workshop is free but pre-registration is requested. To pre-register, call The Alzheimer's Association at 704/532-7390.
Never miss a local story.
You’ll learn detailed information about how the signs appear over time, how to talk with your family physician about your concerns, and how to broach the subject with your loved one. You’ll also find out about the role of early diagnosis in getting the most benefit from available treatments.
The presenter is Margaret Moody, program associate for the Alzheimer's Association Western Carolina Chapter. Adult day care services are available during the presentation for caregivers who need assistance for their loved ones. This must be arranged in advance by calling The Ivey at 704/909-2070.
