Brown Bag Learning Series: It Takes a Community to Care for Alzheimer’s

Presented by Deborah Lynn Strafuss

Become informed and empowered to interact positively with friends, family and customers with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Deborah will share excerpts from her book, On Angels’ Wings, A Journey Through Alzheimer’s with My Mother, as she de-mystifies Alzheimer’s and memory diseases for those attending. Interactive conversation, poetry and informational resources will complement an open discussion. Come and learn about Alzheimer’s and how you, as part of your community, can welcome and support those living with it.
