Alzheimer's Association offers free three-part series

The Alzheimer’s Association, Greater Indiana Chapter, will be hosting a free three-part series, “Living with Alzheimer’s for Caregivers: Early-Stage,” on Wednesdays. Part one begins on Oct. 9, part two on Oct. 16 and part three on Oct. 23 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The programs will be held at Area 9 agency, located at 520 S. Ninth Street in Richmond.

This program series describes the symptoms of the early stage of Alzheimer’s disease, explains the legal, financial and resource planning that needs to be done and explains the various components of a care team and how to successfully work with each component during the early stage of the disease. There is no fee to attend, but registration is requested by contacting the Greater Indiana Chapter’s 24/7 Helpline at 800.272.3900.

Today, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer’s disease, including 120,000 Hoosiers. Alzheimer’s disease is the nation’s sixth leading cause of death. The direct and indirect costs of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias amount to more than $200 billion annually.

The Alzheimer’s Association is the world’s leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer’s research, care and support. Our mission is to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. Our vision is a world without Alzheimer’s. Visit alz.org/Indiana or call 800.272.3900.
