Caring for someone with Alzheimer’s disease

LIBERTY, NY — A free webinar will be offered on Wednesday, June 11, from 1 to 2 p.m. with a how-to look at caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or other dementias. Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) Sullivan County’s Caregiver Resource Center (CRC) will hold this program in the Gerald J. Skoda Extension Education Center.

Instead of focusing on the symptoms, diagnosis, treatments and possible cures for Alzheimer’s, the emphasis will be on the care and dignity of the individual in order to help them live a more fulfilling life. Presented by the American Society on Aging, the guest speaker will be Molly Carpenter, an author, speaker, trainer, and family caregiver.

Pre-registration is encouraged by June 9. Call 845/292-6180 or email Bonnie Lewis at bjl25@cornell.edu.
