DementiaWise Seminar to Provide Valuable Tips to Families
ComForcare Senior Services will host an informative workshop for families caring for someone with dementia at the Cherry Hill Public Library, October 21, beginning at 5 p.m. with refreshments and a meet-and-greet with the seminar’s keynote speaker, Dr. Deborah Bier, Ph.D., the director of special populations for ComForcare Senior Service Corporation.
The hour-and a half workshop, which begins at 6 p.m., will review how to recognize signs of dementia and best practices to make caring for loved ones safer and less stressful. Relevant service and product providers will be available to discuss how they can help those with dementia and their families.
According to the Alzheimer’s Association, by the time one in three seniors pass away, they will have been afflicted with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia, and more than 70 percent of them will be cared for by adult children at home. ComForcare Senior Service Corporation offers compassionate, professional, at-home care, including personal hygiene, grooming and dressing, and nutritious meal preparation for patients with dementia.
Location: 1100 Kings Hwy. N., Cherry Hill. For pre-registration and more information, call 609-747-8866 or visit DementiaWise.com/consumernj.
