Help a sister out!
EVENT 1 (12-3 p.m.)
My friends at the Banner Alzheimer’s Institute are hosting a 3 hour program for friends and family of loved ones with Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD, sometimes called Pick’s disease) to help them better understand and cope with the symptoms, disease progression and the kind of care required. You’ll hear from experts in the field of this dementia, get your questions answered and meet others who are in the same boat.
Remember, you may feel like you’re an island unto yourself when dealing with this, but you are never alone. You just have to take that step, and this is a great first step.
Space is LIMITED, so register for this workshop STAT. Email Deidra Colvin at Deidra.Colvin@bannerhealth.com
EVENT 2 (6-8 p.m.)
YAAA!, Young Advocates for the Alzheimer’s Association, will be hosting its supportive social starting at 6 p.m. at Cheuvront Restaurant & Wine Bar. YAAA! is for younger adult caregivers (18-39) and the intent is to focus on advocacy at the state and federal levels… This is your chance to make your voice heard! Our mix and mingle starts around 7 p.m… this is a great opportunity for caregivers, friends and family to connect, talk to people in the field and find a real support system here in the Valley.
