Dementia Program Series at the Denver Public Library in June
The Alzheimer’s Association will be presenting a three-part class series on Dementia at the Denver Public Library in June. Dementia is a term that describes a group of symptoms associated with a decline in memory or other thinking skills severe enough to reduce a person’s ability to perform everyday activities. Alzheimer’s disease accounts for 60 to 80% of cases.

The first class in the series, “Dementia Conversations,” will take place on Friday, June 14 from 10 AM to 12 PM. In this class, participants will learn how to have honest and caring conversations about common concerns when a loved one begins to show signs of dementia.

On Friday, June 21 from 10 AM-12 PM, the second class will focus on “Legal and Financial Planning.” The diagnosis of Alzheimer’s makes planning for the future more important than ever. Through this interactive two-part program, participants will learn about important legal and financial issues, how to put plans in place, and how to access resources near you.

The third and final class in the series will give participants tips on keeping their brain and body healthy as they age. “Healthy Living for Your Brain and Body” is scheduled for Friday, June 28 from 10 AM-12 PM. Learn about the latest research on making healthy lifestyle choices and use hands-on tools to help you incorporate these recommendations into a plan for healthy aging.

You do not need to attend every session, however, it is recommended. The classes are free to attend and pre-registration is suggested to insure adequate materials and space. Call the Denver Public Library at 984-5140 to attend.
