Tomah Health continues its yearlong dementia education and awareness series Feb. 27 beginning at 1:00 p.m. at Tomah Health, 501 Gopher Drive, Tomah. The February program is titled, ‘The Basics: Memory Loss, Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease.’
“This class will help people understand Alzheimer’s disease and dementia,” said outreach health educator Julie Anderson, RN. “We’ll talk about how Alzheimer’s affects the brain, risk factors and stages of the disease, as well as treatments and advancements in research,” Anderson added.
As with each class in the series, Anderson said people will leave with resources and ways to get more information through the Alzheimer’s Association and local resources.
