Free presentation on Alzheimer’s and dementia

HONESDALE, PA — On Tuesday, December 10 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Park Street Complex, located at 648 West Park St., there will be a free presentation on Alzheimer’s and dementia.

Close to six million Americans have Alzheimer’s, a type of dementia that gradually worsens over time. Can Alzheimer’s be prevented? What are some of the causes and risk factors? If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, what are some of the things you can expect, and how is it treated? These questions and more will be discussed.

The presentation, which includes a light supper, is being offered by Wayne Memorial Hospital, the Wayne County Agency on Aging, PA Link and the Alzheimer’s Association. Additional discussion points will focus on living with Alzheimer’s during the holidays and available resources and services.

To RSVP, contact Jean Tuttle at 570/253-8990 or email tuttle@wmh.org.
