On October 15, we will have our first LifeLong Learning Seminar of the fall. The topic will be "Dementia 101, presented by Janet B. Altman.
A selection of beverages and à la carte breakfast foods will be available beginning at 8:30 a.m. There is no cost to attend this seminar, but reservations are needed. Guests are welcome to attend.
Over the past 20+ years, Janet has talked with hundreds of people as they adjusted to their “new normal” when a friend or family member began to experience the cognitive impairment known as dementia. She has directed them to support groups and other resources in the community and recommended publications and referred to healthcare professionals.
Most recently, she asked Dr. Joe Taber, a retired Neurologist and member of First Presbyterian, to review her notes and provide any input. She has incorporated his insights into this presentation.
