Programs on Memory Loss

A conceptual look at Alzheimers disease, and some of the problems it brings.

Claverack Library Presents Programs on Memory Loss

Thursday, November 3 &
Thursday, November 17
4:30 PM to 6:00  PM

 

The Claverack Free Library will host educational programs by Molly McCann of the Alzheimer’s Association of Northeastern NY. Early detection is the key to improving quality of life for anyone affected by memory impairment.

Attend the November 3rd workshop to learn the 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s Disease where we separate myth from reality and address commonly-held fears about Alzheimer’s and dementia.

The November 17th program offers participants an opportunity to learn about research in the areas of diet and nutrition, exercise, cognitive activity and social engagement, and use hands-on tools to help incorporate these recommendations into A Plan for Healthy Aging.

The intended audience is anyone who is aging or who has a friend or family member who is aging or affected by Alzheimer’s disease or dementia – in other words, almost everyone.

These 90 minute programs are free, but pre-registration is encouraged, via email to news@claveracklibrary.org or phone 518 851-7120.

These two sessions follow a presentation this past summer on basic facts about memory loss. Members of the public may attend one or both programs, and attendance at the prior program is not required.

Parking is available behind the Claverack Library, located at 629 Rte. 23B.

Questions are encouraged, and refreshments will be served.

These programs are supported in part by a grant from the NY State Department of Health.
