The Day Away Program sponsored an informational forum on memory loss recently at the Minot-Sleeper Library in Bristol, NH. A short film was played showing a family’s struggle living with a loved one with Alzheimer’s. The film was followed by presentations from a panel of medical professionals who specialize in memory loss. The panel’s subjects included the complicated effects on those suffering with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, current treatments available, coping skills for caregivers, the need for respite, and long-term care options. Bill York of Live Free Home Health Care in Meredith NH spoke on the importance of support groups for caregivers. Day Away would like to thank the panel for their time and much needed information on the many facets of memory loss diseases including care giving.
