When someone is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, friends and family have many questions. What does the diagnosis mean? What kinds of plans need to be made? What resources are available to help? As the disease progresses, new questions reflect growing needs for skills, programs and services.

“Living with Alzheimer’s for Caregivers” is a three-session series from the Alzheimer’s Association. Presbyterian Manor will host the series of free events Sept. 21 and 28 and Oct. 5 at Newton Presbyterian Manor.

The first session Sept. 21 will focus on the Early Stages, followed by the Middle Stages Sept. 28 and Late Stages on Oct. 5. These classes will provide information on what to expect, how to plan, and what resources are available at each stage of the disease. You can attend one or all classes to fit your family’s situation.

Each “Living with Alzheimer’s for Caregivers” session will begin at 6 p.m. at Newton Presbyterian Manor, 1200 E. Seventh. The presentations are free, and refreshments will be served. The talks are part of Newton Presbyterian Manor’s Just Ask series, a free, ongoing lifelong learning program featuring information from local, regional and national experts on topics of interest to older adults and their families.

For more information or to RSVP, contact Marketing Director Noelle Dickinson at 316-283-5400 or ndickinson@pmma.org.
