The Alzheimer’s Association Western New York Chapter is planning two free education programs at the central (downtown) branch of the Buffalo and Erie County Public Library. 

On Saturday, Nov. 13, Chapter representatives will present “Dementia 101,” an overview of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, as well as information about additional programs and how to access local resources for caregivers and those living with the disease. The class starts at 10 a.m. and runs about an hour. Refreshments and giveaways will be available with pre-registration by phone at 626-0600, ext. 2. 

A second program, “Tips for Tough Dementia Behaviors,” will take place from 12 to 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 14. This program is ideal for care partners of those living with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia, as it offers verbal and non-verbal strategies for caregivers to more effectively understand and remedy troublesome behaviors that often accompany the progression of the disease. Giveaways and refreshments will also be available for those who pre-register by calling 626-0600, ext.2.

Masks are required for all attendees at both programs, regardless of vaccination status.

For additional program offerings, both in-person and virtual, as well as other dementia resources available locally, over the phone and online, call the Association’s free 24/7 Helpline at 800-272-3900 or visit alz.org/WNY.
