CHARLESTON, SC -

September is World Alzheimer's Month, throughout the month free tools and materials will be available to help caregivers and loved ones cope with issues that often result from Alzheimer's and other dementias.

Free workshops will be held for family members and caregivers where they will receive training to help them deal with the challenging behaviors that can result from the Alzheimer's.

The Alzheimer's CARE: Changing Aging Through Research and Education workshops will be offered on:

  1. September 24 at 6 p.m. at Summerville Medical Center, 295 Midland Parkway, Summerville

For World Alzheimer's Month, Home Instead Senior Care will host more than 750 free, in-person Alzheimer's CARE Training sessions globally. Also available online, these training sessions help families prepare for and react to the challenging behaviors involved with Alzheimer's and dementia, and also to help family members care for themselves.

Complementing the training is a new handbook, Confidence to Care, and the free Alzheimer's care smartphone app, "Alzheimer's and Other Dementias Daily Helper." Both offer practical insights to understanding, managing and preventing the behavioral symptoms associated with dementia and Alzheimer's disease and are designed to be quick reference materials when caregivers are looking for a solution to a situation.
