Mountain Shadows Church to host Alzheimer’s workshop

Mountain Shadows Presbyterian Church will host the first of three workshops offered by the Alzheimer’s Association, Desert Southwest Chapter. This initial meeting will talk about the basics of memory loss, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s is not a normal part of aging, and those attending will learn how to detect the disease, as well as its causes, risk factors and stages.

This free opportunity will be held Thursday, July 11 from 10:30 to 11:45 a.m. at the church, located on 3201 East Mountainaire Road, where it intersects with Oracle Road in Catalina. Seating is limited and reservations are required, which can be made at 322-6601.

The two following CarePRO classes in July, focusing on different topics, will be held in the CareMore Meeting Room on North Stone Avenue. Communication and coping skills will be taught, while behavior issues and relaxation techniques will also be addressed. More information can be obtained online at Alz.org/dsw.
