Dementia Conversations – March 15
When someone is showing signs of dementia, it’s time to talk. Often, conversations with family about changing behaviors can be challenging and uncomfortable. This program provides tips for breaking the ice with your family so you can address some of the most common issues that are difficult to discuss: going to the doctor for a diagnosis or medical treatment, deciding when to stop driving, and making legal and financial plans for future care.
Legal and Financial – April 12
The diagnosis of Alzheimer’s makes planning for the future more important than ever. In this class you will learn about important legal and financial issues, how to put plans in place, and how to access legal and financial resources.
