We often joke about memory loss but what happens when it becomes more than a senior moment? What is the impact of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia – on the person, the caregiver, society, and the economy? And what can we do about it?
Join AARP New Hampshire and New Hampshire Public Television for a Caring to Remember Community Conversation:
Wednesday, February 25
6:30 to 8:00 pm
Red River Theatres
11 South Main Street, Concord
There will be a 30-minute screening of a special television program called Changing Aging in the Granite State which will be followed by a discussion with panelists and audience members. Experts include Dr. Stephen Bartels from the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth, discussing the evidence behind prevention; author Rebecca Rule, sharing her approach as a caregiver for her mother; and Joel Green from Merrimack County ServiceLink, bringing information on local resources.
The event is free of charge but RSVPs are requested. Register online or call Red River at 603 224 4600. You can also drop by the box office at 11 South Main Street.
