The Alzheimer’s Association Illinois Chapter educational program, “Dementia Conversations”, will take place on at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, July 24, 2018 at The Alzheimer’s Association Peoria Office, 614 W. Glen Avenue.

If someone you know has begun to exhibit signs of dementia, it’s time to talk. But these conversations can be difficult and uncomfortable. Join the discussion to learn how to have the conversation about the memory changes you’ve noticed. Learn tips to reduce the stress related to doctor’s visits, how to decide when to stop driving, and the importance of legal and financial planning.

Program specialist Daryl Carlson will present and take questions following the program.

The end of Alzheimer’s disease starts here. To register for this program offered at no cost, call 309.681.1100 or register online at alz.org/Illinois.
