Still time to register for Thursday’s “Understanding Dementia” seminar

Town of Wake Forest News

The Wake Forest Renaissance Centre for the Arts is hosting a series of seminars through December designed to raise awareness about Alzeheimer’s disease and related dementias. Each event in the 2018 Understanding Dementia series is designed to offer local residents the opportunity to learn about dozens of dementia-related programs, services, products and resources – all in one location.

The series continues this Thursday, July 26, from 9:30-11 a.m. with “Know the 10 Signs: Early Detection Matters.” The event will take place inside the Renaissance Centre, 405 S. Brooks St.

The warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease are often dismissed as normal aging. If you or someone you know is experiencing memory loss or behavioral changes, it is time to learn the facts. Hear from people who have the disease and learn how to recognize the 10 warning signs of Alzheimer’s in yourself and others. 

Future workshops are scheduled on Aug. 23 (Healthy Living for Your Brain & Body); Sept. 27 (Dementia Conversations); and Dec. 2 (Memory Café). Each event is free, but registration is required as seating is limited. To view the entire schedule and pre-register, visit www.wakeforestnc.gov/dementia-awareness-education-series.aspx.

The Renaissance Centre is presenting the series in collaboration with the Alzheimer’s Association of Eastern North Carolina and Wake Forest SING as part of an ongoing effort to establish Wake Forest as a dementia-friendly community.
