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?
There will be a 30-minute screening of a special television program called Changing Aging in the Granite State and will be followed by a discussion with panelists and audience members. Experts include Dr. Robert Santulli of the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth, discussing the evidence behind prevention; Connie Young from ServiceLink Resource Center of Rockingham County, bringing information on local resources; and Heidi Harris, a local caregiver, sharing their approach as a caregiver for her father.
This event is free of charge but RSVPs are requested to ensure you have a seat. Register online at http://aarp.cvent.com/MemoryNashua.
