The second program in the library’s Adult Learning Series will focus on a topic that has or will touch most of us in one way or another sometime in our lives. An ‘Understanding Alzheimer’s And Dementia’ workshop will be of interest to anyone who is a family member, caregiver, or friend to someone facing this devastating disease. The program is scheduled on Thursday, March 14 at 10 a.m., as a speaker from the Alzheimer’s Association will help attendees understand risk factors and stages, current research and treatments available for some symptoms, and Alzheimer’s Association resources available with help and support.
