Alzheimer’s Association to host early-stage workshop series

The Alzheimer’s Association West Virginia Chapter is offering a series of free community workshops for persons in the early stage of Alzheimer’s disease or dementia and their care partners. The Living with Alzheimer’s workshop series will be held beginning Monday, Nov. 9 at 5 p.m. at the Robert C. Byrd Clinic in Lewisburg.

The Living with Alzheimer’s Program is a three-part series: Understanding the Basics, Resource Building, and Dealing with the Changes.  The workshop is an opportunity for individuals – regardless of age – who have recently received an Alzheimer’s diagnosis to remain active while sharing experiences with others who are living with the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease. At the conclusion of the series, participants will have the opportunity to become involved in Early Stage Support Groups and other social activities.

An RSVP is required by calling 800-272-3900 and a brief consultation will be conducted prior to entrance in the program.
