Understanding and Living Well with Dementia

Forgetting names? Keys? What is normal aging and what is Alzheimer’s or dementia? And how do you relate to friends and family members who have dementia? Come learn about changes associated with aging, Alzheimer’s and other dementias from a dementia specialist from LiveWell (formerly the Alzheimer’s Resource Center in Southington, CT). Hear directly from Bob Savage who is actively engaged with other peers living “well” with dementia. Local resources for memory screens, support groups, dementia education and services will be highlighted.

Dementia Friends Information Session

Dementia Friends is a global movement that is changing the way people think, act, and talk about dementia. This information session will help you better understand what dementia is, how it affects people and how you can make a difference for people touched by dementia. Hear stories and experiences directly from someone who is living “well” with dementia.
