The Alzheimer’s Family Organization (AFO) will host a free Caregiver Learning Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on August 10, 2018 at the Residence at Timber Pines, 3140 Forest Road in Spring Hill, Florida. A continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.
The program will include a report about services available to seniors from the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office by Denise Moloney, information about the Disability Rights Florida by DRF Director Amanda Haystek, and a workshop about how to interpret the behaviors of individuals with dementia for better care and communication by Debbie Selsavage, President of the AFO Board of Directors.
The event will also include the Virtual Dementia Tour, provided by Senior Helpers. The Virtual Dementia Tour is a science-based simulation of what individuals living with dementia experience so that caregivers can better understand the physical and cognitive deficits their loved ones are dealing with.
Other resource providers supporting the event will include Terlep Chiropractic, Davis Family Hearing, Meridien Research, and The Residence at Timber Pines.
AFO Caregiver Learning Days follow a welcoming and interactive format where attendees are encouraged to ask questions and discuss their concerns about Alzheimer’s Disease and other forms of dementia. While the Learning Day is free, reservations are requested for planning purposes. To register to attend, or for more information please call 352-616-0170.
