Senior Concerns and the Alzheimer’s Association will host a seminar on “Living with Alzheimer’s Disease: Mid Stages” from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tues., Sept. 15 at Senior Concerns, 401 Hodencamp Road, Thousand Oaks.
Presented by Monica A. Schrader, education and outreach director for the Alzheimer’s Association California Central Chapter, the seminar will cover behavioral symptoms, wandering and keeping the person with Alzheimer’s safe.
Family caregivers will learn: the symptoms and care needs associated with the middle stages of Alzheimer’s disease, the relationship changes that occur as the disease progresses, safety and preparing for emergencies, accessing respite care, and effective ways to provide personal care and manage challenging behaviors.
