Alzheimer’s Blowout

Party supports efforts to end Alzheimer's disease through research

(Continued)

“The more you use your brain, the longer it will stay active and well,” said Cunningham.

Home Instead is also offering a free Alzheimer’s CARE training workshop on Tuesday, Sept. 17, also at Madison Park’s Scatterfield Site, with two sessions available. The first session runs from 9 a.m. to noon, and the second session from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. One need attend only a single session.

The workshop details the CARE program developed by Home Instead. It “incorporates an innovative, hands-on approach to help families deal with the difficult behavioral changes that often are associated with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias.” Caregivers will learn how to manage behaviors, encourage engagement and care for themselves while caring for their loved one. It’s also an opportunity to get to know others caring for a loved one with dementia. Call 643-5200 to reserve a spot.

“We’re trying to educate families,” said Wrin. He came into the field after personal family experience, founding Anderson’s Home Instead seven years ago. Now, there are 105 caregivers in the field locally, and six on staff, with a focus on compassionate caregiving.

On Oct. 5, Shadyside Park in Anderson is the place to be for the Walk to End Alzheimer’s. Registration starts at 9 a.m. An opening ceremony takes place at 10 a.m., and the walk commences at 10:30 a.m. Funds raised will support the work of the Alzheimer’s Association.

    Warm beer lines the shelves inside the Ricker’s BP on Eighth Street less than a foot from a refrigerated section, but the convenience store is not planning to move the beer anytime soon. That’s because a state law prohibits Ricker’s from selling cold beer to customers.
