Alzheimer’s Association hosting fair to spread awareness on local resources for Dementia
The Alzheimer's Association says there is a special need for local resources, especially during a world wide pandemic.
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – An event geared towards those who have a loved one suffering from Dementia is coming up next weekend. It’s a resource fair full of over 15 different local places in the community that can help.
“The Dementia Puzzle – Putting the Pieces Together,” will be held this Friday, September 10th, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. under the Auld Pavilion in Antelope Park (1650 Memorial Drive). The event is free and open to the public.
The Alzheimer’s Association says there is a special need for local resources, especially during a world wide pandemic.
“When the time comes, if you need something, or maybe the time is now, you’ll have all of those resources at your hand and that will make it a lot easier to know who your person is, who you need to go to,” Gayleen Bradley, a Patient Care Coordinator for Nebraska LTC Pharmacy said.
Lawyers, nurse-practitioners, support groups, mobility options are just some of the resources that will be available this Friday under one roof.
This is the first event of its kind in Lincoln and the Alzheimer’s Association hopes to make this a tradition moving forward.
