Do you help relatives, friends, neighbors, or a spouse who may be suffering from memory loss? The Tuscarawas County Public Library System has partnered with The Alzheimer’s Association, to present a free three-part series that will provide caregivers with the tools to understand Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia.

The three-part series will be held on Tuesdays this fall from 6:30 PM-7:30 PM at the Main Library of the Tuscarawas County Public Library System located at 121 Fair Ave in New Philadelphia.

“This educational program series is designed to help family caregivers understand the disease, develop communication strategies, and understand triggers,” said Adult and Teen Services Manager Robyn Guedel.

According to Guedel, attendees will benefit from these classes whether they are a relative or caregivers for a parent, spouse, or friend and whether the person they care for is someone who lives at home, in a nursing home, or across the country.

Dates and Topics include:

  • September 13th: Understanding Alzheimer’s and Dementia
  • October 11th: Dementia Caregiver Effective Communication Strategies
  • November 15th: Understanding and Responding to Dementia Behavior

Class size is limited. Registration is required. To register visit the library’s online event calendar or call 330-364-4474.
