Florence will play host to a five-session workshop series that is aimed at developing the skills needed for providing care for patients with dementia or memory loss.
The participants in the workshop will learn about dementia and its impact as well as aspects such as how to manage frustration and stress from taking care of someone with the disease. They will also learn about how to communicate with their loved ones, and how to take better care of their own health.
In order to participate, a person must provide an average of four hours or more care or supervision per day for a family member suffering from dementia or memory loss and find it difficult to manage their time and energy.
Alzheimer's Association Desert Southwest Chapter, Pinal-Gila Council for Senior Citizens, Arizona State University, and the Arizona Department of Economic Security are jointly organizing the programme. There is a pre-registration process and seating is limited for the CarePRO program.
The Alzheimer's Association is an organization dedicated to research, and to providing support and assistance to people with Alzheimer's disease as well as their families.
