The Alzheimer’s Association Western New York Chapter is planning an online Safety Resource Fair to address security concerns, including preventing wandering by individuals with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia.

The virtual program will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 26, using a digital platform that can be accessed via laptop, tablet or smartphone. It will provide information for caregivers, family members, those living with the disease, professionals and the general public to collect information and enroll in various programs and services related to wandering prevention and general safety preparedness.

Among topics:
• MedicAlert + Wandering Support
• ECMC Driver Evaluation Program
• Alzheimer’s Association WNY

There will also be time for Q&A with representatives from those programs.

Pre-registration is required to get the link to access the live, online presentation by visiting tinyurl.com/Alzsafety or calling 800-272-3900. Those unfamiliar with online conferences can request a brief one-on-one training session from the WNY Staff by calling 626-0600, ext. 313.

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. You can learn more by calling 626-0600 during traditional business hours, or 24/7 at 800-272-3900 or alz.org/WNY.
