Area families are invited to attend a free Alzheimer’s CARE training workshop that will be offered in recognition of World Alzheimer’s Month (September). Home Instead Senior Care office serving Charleston and the Low Country of South Carolina is offering five sessions of the training.

Developed by Home Instead Senior Care, the Alzheimer’s or Other Dementias CARE program incorporates an innovative, hands-on approach to help families deal with the difficult behavioral changes that often are associated with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias.

During the workshop, program experts will teach caregivers how to:
· Manage behaviors
· Encourage engagement
· Care for themselves while caring for their loved one

I believe it is important for children to understand Alzheimer's disease so they can still interact lovingly with family members who have this disease. I am a 17 year old college junior, Alzheimer's researcher, and Alzheimer's advocate.I grew up as a caregiver to my great grandmother who had Alzheimer's disease. After her death, I founded a nonprofit organization that has distributed over 24,000 puzzles to Alzheimer's facilities. Recently, the book I coauthored explaining Alzheimer's disease to children became available on Amazon.My hope was to provide some helpful coping mechanisms to the many children dealing with Alzheimer's disease among their family members. 50 percent of the profits from this book will go to Alzheimer's causes. I think this book could help a lot of children and families."Why Did Grandma Put Her Underwear in Refrigerator? A Book Explaining Alzheimer's Disease to Children."
