Estimates vary, but experts suggest that as many as 5.1 million Americans may have Alzheimer’s disease. Peoria First Church of the Nazarene invites you to attend a four week series (2 hours each session) beginning Thursday, October 3, 6:30-8:30 pm on “The Savvy Caregiver” DVD series to become better educated on this disease through the eyes of caregivers. You’ll learn the basics about dementia, how dementia affects thinking skills, the role “caregivers” play, and effective ways to respond to behaviors of those friends or family with dementia. In this classroom format, you’ll see real people sharing their caregiving concerns openly and honestly—concerns that affect just about every caregiver.
