lose your train of thought more often than you'd like?
That happens to everyone as they get older. But those normal
developments can be a little scary when you have loved ones with
Alzheimer's disease. You may worry that your memory is slipping, or
wonder if you're seeing the signs of early Alzheimer's disease in
yourself or a family member.
Learn how to keep your memory strong as you age, and how you may be
able to slow the progression of dementia in a loved one, at a free
workshop from the Alzheimer's Association Western Carolina Chapter and
The Ivey, the adult day care center in the SouthPark area of Charlotte.
The two non-profits will host "Now What Was I Saying?" on Tuesday,
September 14. Choose from two times -- 2 to 4 pm, or 6 to 8 pm -- at
The Ivey, 6030 Park South Drive. The workshop is free but pre-
registration is requested. To pre-register, call The Alzheimer's
Association at 704/532-7390.
You'll learn how the brain and memory work, and you'll discover ways
to maintain a healthy brain as you age. This is a fun, interactive
workshop where you'll learn surprising information about yourself.
The presenter is Margaret Moody, program associate for the Alzheimer's
Association Western Carolina Chapter. Adult day care services are
available during the presentation for caregivers who need assistance
for their loved ones. This must be arranged in advance by calling The
Ivey at 704/909-2070.
"Now What Was I Saying?" is part of a free autumn series on
Alzheimer's at The Ivey, co-sponsored by the Alzheimer's Association.
Future workshops in the series include "When the Diagnosis is
Alzheimer's" on Saturday, October 9, and "Alzheimer's and the
Holidays" on Tuesday, November 9.
