The Society has formed a relationship with the City Club of Cleveland, the nation’s oldest forum of free speech. We will be sponsoring a table at a series of four talks throughout the year on end-of-life matters.
Join us for the City Club’s series on Aging in Northeast Ohio
Support and Survival: Handling Alzheimer’s and Dementia
Thursday, October 13, 2016 – 4:00PM
A Panel Discussion
A diagnosis of Alzheimer’s or dementia is among the most worrisome challenges of aging. Those who struggle with these diseases often become a shadow of their former selves. In worst case scenarios, the transformation results in violent tendencies in loved ones that often weren’t present before.
As part of our series on Aging in Northeast Ohio, we present a special afternoon panel conversation at one of our region’s leading institutions in elder care. Family members and physicians will discuss the journey of caring for those battling different forms of dementia.
