Speaker on Alzheimer’s Disease Wednesday at Kimball Library

Communities / Sep. 7, 2017 9:06am EDT

Are you worried about Alzheimer’s Disease? Are you concerned about yourself, your spouse, a parent or sibling? Are you concerned about people in your faith community or among your friends?

On Wednesday, Sept. 13 at 7 p.m., Sherril Bover-Cheney will facilitate a free, informal workshop at Kimball Library to explore Alzheimer’s disease—what it is and what it is not.

The group will take a look at 10 warning signs that can alert families to its onset. Most people know that Alzheimer’s disease is about memory loss, but it’s also about thinking and reasoning skills, behavior, and personality changes.

If you have questions that you would rather ask privately, you may email Bover-Cheney at sherril. bover@gmail.com, before the session.

Bover-Cheney was caregiver and advocate for her mother, Mary, who died of Alzheimer’s disease in January 2006. She is a trained support group facilitator and she served as education coordinator for the Alzheimer’s Association California Central Coast, where she taught a variety of classes and workshops.

She is author of “Compassionate Strategies for Dementia Care,” a guide for family caregivers; and coauthor and co-presenter of “The Alzheimer’s Dialogues” and of “Making the Most of a Visit to a Loved One with Dementia.”

The library is ADA accessible. For more information, call 728-5073.
