Dementia Conversations: A Program for Families @ Louis B. Goodall Memorial Library
Dec 5 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Mark Pechenik, Director of Community Outreach with the Maine Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association, returns to Goodall library on Tuesday, Dec. 5 at 6:00pm to present the program “Dementia Conversations”.

This program is for families and individuals coping with Alzheimer’s disease or the beginning stages of dementia.

Overview:

When someone is showing signs of dementia, it’s time to talk. Often, conversations with family about changing behaviors can be challenging and uncomfortable. This program provides tips for breaking the ice with family members so you can address some of the most common issues that are difficult to discuss: going to the doctor for a diagnosis or medical treatment, deciding when to stop driving, and making legal and financial plans for future care.
