Alzheimer’s Association will be hosting Alzheimer’s Community Forums

The Alzheimer’s Association will be hosting Alzheimer’s Community Forums this November and December.  Forums provide an opportunity for residents of all ages to come together to ask questions about the disease, share their personal experiences, learn about available resources and discover volunteer opportunities to support families affected by the disease.

 

No individual or family should have to navigate the challenges of Alzheimer’s disease alone. Community forums bring together families affected by the disease with dedicated staff and volunteers to open conversation in an effort to bolster resources, programs, and services to support families in their communities.

 

Working together with volunteers, the Alzheimer’s Association can work to ensure families have access to the resources available to help them face the many challenges associated with the disease. Community volunteers are essential in helping the Alzheimer’s Association best serve the needs of families affected by any type of dementia, in driving awareness and in mobilizing West Virginia communities in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease.
