10 - 09 - 2013 Free Alzheimers workshop at JC Blair Hospital Oct. 15
There is help for families in the central PA area to be aware of new, free tools and materials designed to help care for loved ones who are living with Alzheimerâs. To help families face Alzheimerâs with confidence rather than fear, the local Home Instead Senior Care office in Huntingdon is making available a free workshop for family members where they will receive training to help them deal with the challenging behaviors that often result from Alzheimerâs and other dementias. The workshop will be Oct. 15 from 6-8:30 p.m. at JC Blair Memorial Hospital, 1225 Warm Springs Ave., Huntingdon. Experts estimate that Alzheimerâs either is impacting -- or will someday -- an estimated one-third of the families in your coverage area. The overwhelming majority of these families â 70 percent â are caring for their loved ones at home.
