The Alzheimer’s Association Western New York Chapter is launching a limited series focused on providing educational tools and other resources for those living with a diagnosis of early stage Alzheimer’s disease, Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) or another form of dementia.
The Living With Alzheimer’s program will cover what a diagnosis means, how to find resources to help with disease management, local supportive services and financial considerations. Staff from the WNY Chapter will host the free webinar series starting on Tuesday, Feb. 15, using Zoom, making it accessible via desktop or laptop computer, tablet or smartphone. Care partners are also welcome to attend, as guidance on improving communication, managing behavioral changes and the importance of self-care will also be discussed.
The program is free to attend, but registration is required by calling the local Chapter during regular business hours at (716) 626-0600, extension 313. Once registered, you will be sent the access link and other details via email.
The Alzheimer’s Association leads the way to end Alzheimer’s and all other dementia — by accelerating global research, driving risk reduction and early detection, and maximizing quality care and support.
The local Chapter provides programs, services and other resources for those living with dementia, their care partners, healthcare professionals and others across eight counties: Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie, Genesee, Niagara, Orleans and Wyoming.
