The Alzheimer’s Association would like to reach more people with its educational programs. In its effort to do this, the association is looking for organizations (businesses, senior centers, service clubs, churches, libraries, colleges, chambers, etc…) that would like to partner with the association to host free education programs.
The programs that are being offered are “The 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s Disease,” “Understanding Alzheimer’s and Dementia,” “Healthy Living for your Brain and Body: Tips from the Latest Research,” “Effective Communication Strategies,” “Dementia Conversations” and “Understanding and Responding to Dementia-Related Behaviors.”
All programs can be presented in 60-minute or 30-minute options. Sixty-minute programs are also available in Spanish.
The programs will be presented on Zoom and by an Alzheimer’s Association trained volunteer community educator.
The Alzheimer’s Association leads the way to end Alzheimer’s disease and all other dementia — by accelerating global research, driving risk reduction and early detection and maximizing quality care and support. Its work in Humboldt County and throughout the country provides high-quality care and support programs and services for every generation touched by Alzheimer’s and other dementias.
