The Alzheimer?s Association SC Chapter is sponsoring an event entitled, ?About Alzheimer?s and Dementia: A Special Workshop for Caregivers, Teens and Children?, on Saturday, July 24, 2010, 9:00am-12:00pm, at Mt. Carmel AME Church (Family Life Center), 209 Mt. Carmel Road, Gray Court, SC. Our co-sponsor is the Carolina Center for Behavioral Health. There is no cost, and all interested persons are invited to attend. The workshop will provide the opportunity for persons to visit community resource exhibits and participate in one of the following sessions:

 A Caregivers? Session with Teepa Snow, a nationally renowned dementia care & training specialist. This session will focus on helping caregivers respond effectively to individuals who have dementia. General CEU?s will be available for this two-hour session at no cost.

 A Children/Teen?s Session (for ages 5-15) with Reverend Emma Schramm, a minister and retired hospice administrator. This session will use a variety of fun activities to help participants learn how to be a friend to someone with Alzheimer?s disease. Adults are welcome to observe.

This workshop is presented in memory of Mrs. Georgia Etta Jones Wharton and is made possible by Mrs. Wharton?s daughter, Georgia Wharton Fowler. Mrs. Fowler?s giving spirit has inspired this community workshop designed for families, for caregivers as well as for teens and children who are coping with the ways that Alzheimer?s can change a loved one.

The Alzheimer?s Association can help family caregivers arrange a no-cost, in-home sitter to attend this event. Please call in advance.
