November is Alzheimer’s Awareness Month. Did you know that 1 in 9 adults over 65 (and 1 in 3 adults over 80) experience cognitive decline? Dementia is a common health problem, and an intensely emotional one for individuals who have it, as well and their loved ones. AgeWell Atlanta is hosting an informational panel to arm community members with knowledge in the fight against dementia.
Join JF&CS Geriatric Care Manager Wendy Liverant, MBA, and Wellness Care Specialist and Dementia Services Coordinator, Samantha Freeman, MSW, for Let’s Talk about Dementia, an informative and real discussion on caring for loved ones with dementia. Shari Bayer, CMO of Jewish HomeLife, will share information and resources offered by Jewish HomeLife. Moderated by AgeWell Atlanta Program Manager Jennifer Curry, this seminar will provide resources for strengthening memory and guidance for helping family members with love, hope and dignity.
This free program is Friday, November 11 at noon and will take place over Zoom. This webinar will provide information and resources for families who have a loved one experiencing dementia, Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, and other memory challenges. We will discuss the emotional, physical, and financial challenges when a loved one has dementia and share community resources from Aviv Older Adult Services of JF&CS, Jewish HomeLife, and the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta. A Q&A will follow the panel.
If someone you love is suffering from cognitive decline, you are not alone. Join AgeWell Atlanta for an afternoon of learning and connect with experts.
