Free Alzheimer’s series at senior center

The Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Cincinnati will present a series of quarterly Lunch and Learns at the Highland County Senior Center in 2016. These programs will provide an opportunity for families and caregivers to learn and ask questions about Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, while receiving support from others in similar situations.

You are invited to attend any or all of the programs. Programs are free of charge; however, the association requests that you register because a free lunch is being provided by The Laurels of Hillsboro.

The dates and topics for the series are:

• Tuesday, March 15 – Healthy Habits

• Tuesday, June 14 – Activities for Dementia Patients

• Tuesday, Sept. 20 -Dementia Conversations

• Tuesday, Dec. 6 – Dealing With the Holidays/Visiting

All Lunch and Learn sessions will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Registration is required for the Lunch and Learn program. To register or obtain more information on the program, call Robyn Gleadle, LISW, Southeastern Ohio Branch Program Coordinator, at (937) 779-6990.

The Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Cincinnati serves 27 counties in Southern Ohio, Southeastern Indiana and Northern Kentucky where an estimated 50,000 people have Alzheimer’s disease. Today, Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States.
