The Alzheimer’s Association – Western Carolina Chapter will be hosting a three-part dementia-related workshop series – “Caring for My Loved One with Dementia – Preparing for the Road Ahead.”

The program will take place the first three Wednesdays in February from 9-11 a.m. at Reuter Center at UNC-Asheville located at 1 University Heights.

Part 1 will take place on Feb. 5; Part 2 will take place on Feb. 12; and Part 3 will take place on Feb. 19. The three sessions are free and will help caregivers learn strategies to provide safe, effective and comfortable care in the middle stages of Alzheimer’s. These educational programs are open to the general public and are particularly valuable for individuals who were care partners and are now hands-on caregivers. Registration is strongly suggested to ensure space for all attendees.

“This workshop series is invaluable for caregivers who are caring for individuals living in the middle stage of Alzheimer’s,” said Katherine L. Lambert, CEO of the Western Carolina Chapter. “This is one of the many ways our organization is supporting the 473,000 people in North Carolina who are caring for a loved one living with Alzheimer’s or other dementias. We want them to know that they are not alone in their caregiving journey and that the Alzheimer’s Association is here for them.”
