ALZEHEIMER’S EDUCATION AND HELP SEMINAR
As a public service, the Outdoor Decorating Committee is currently putting together and will be hosting a seminar to answer all your questions regarding Dementia, Alzheimer’s and Care giving.
How do you know if it’s Alzheimer’s? What are the early warning signs? What should you be concerned about, and what is just normal aging. What do you do when your spouse is driving you crazy with repetitive behavior, unreasonable demands or sundowners??? What do you do when you feel guilty because it’s sometimes overwhelming?
Is there any help for me out there? Can I get some relief? How much does it cost? Just what services are available to help me out?
These are all things that will be covered, and there will be a question and answer session.
Representatives from Nu Hope; Elder Care Services and Change of Pace; Caring for Caregivers and Sarasota Memorial Hospital Memory Care Clinic will be here to help us to understand all of these questions and concerns.
A sign-up book is located on the credenza for you to sign up. The purpose for this is to give Nu Hope and Change of Pace and the Outdoor Decorating Committee an idea of how many people to expect. It’s easier if you have a heads up count. If you have not signed up but want to attend at the last minute…..you are entirely welcome but we may run out of refreshments. Your cooperation would be greatly appreciated by all.
Mark your calendars for MARCH 7th, 1:00 pm, in the clubhouse in the bingo area, and Please help us spread the word……….we’d like to reach out to as many people as we can.
It’s amazing how often one hears………”Oh!, I didn’t know about it” There is no charge to attend this seminar.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call Penny Irilli 863 835-1435.

Our incredibly talented cast of singers and dancers have cut their teeth performing in commercials and kicking up their heels at local theme parks and theaters all around central Florida.
