Co-sponsored by the Alzheimer’s Association Greater Illinois Chapter, the workshop is a must for those in the special role of being a caregiver to someone with Alzheimer's, which requires a tremendous amount of flexibility and patience. Featuring information and strategies to help caregivers provide safe, effective and comfortable care for Alzheimer’s disease, the program will begin by highlighting the various symptoms of the disease’s middle stages and changes in relationships in addition to preparing for hospitalizations. Discussions of practical concerns including medication management, home safety, wandering and behavior changes will follow. Services available to both the caregiver and the individual with Alzheimer’s will be addressed in the final portion of the workshop. Advance registration requested.
