Learn About Dementia, Memory Loss
MAUMEE, OH – Just a few weeks ago, retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor bravely announced her departure from public life following a diagnosis of dementia, probably Alzheimer’s. This devastating disease affects individuals in all walks of life, making learning more about it a top priority.
Join us on Wednesday January 9, from 6:30pm to 8:00pm, at the Wood County Senior Center 305 North Main St. Bowling Green OH, for an Alzheimer’s Community Forum. This town hall style meeting will gather constituents to ask questions and gain answers about Alzheimer’s, discuss their experiences, learn about local resources, and more.
Event goals include listening to the experiences of the community related to Alzheimer’s and other dementias; identifying needs, gaps in resources and opportunities; and elevating awareness of the caregiver programs and services of the Alzheimer’s Association.
If you live or work in Wood County and have an interest in or experience with Alzheimer’s or other dementias as it impacts our community we want to hear from you. Business and community leaders, affected individuals, family members and caregivers, faith leaders, education leaders, hospitals, volunteer organizations, among many others, we invite you to attend.
