"The Dementia Story"

St. Paul's Lutheran Church, 1780 Career Center Rd, Bourbonnais, IL 60914

Invite your friends! The entire community is welcome!

For 1 hour and 15 minutes we will spend some time learning about:

1.  Who was Dr. Alzheimer? An introduction to Alzheimers and dementia

2.  A deeper look into what happens in the brain of someone who has Alzheimer's

2.  The stages of Alzheimer's from a family's point of view.  What will you see and what should you do?

3.  The latest research on dementia prevention

We will end up with each attendee receiving a small journal and talk about how journaling can help a caregiver or anyone that knows someone with dementia.

The presentations will have some interactive times where the audience can participate, along with discussion, sharing and questions answered.

Karie Gerdes, Director of Faith Place Memory Care at Prairieview Lutheran Homes works with those who have dementia every single day. Her experience is invaluable to help families face this tough disease.
