Caring for a loved one or assisting a friend who is living with dementia can be challenging. To assist those who need a helping hand, the Dementia Alliance of North Carolina has scheduled a two-part Community Dementia Workshop, to be held at the Northern Granville Senior Center in Stovall, on Tuesday, Aug. 20 and Tuesday, Aug. 27 from 10 a.m. until noon.
These sessions will explore what is happening when signs of dementia are present, how to better communicate with someone who has dementia, ways to better understand changes that may occur, and how to be better prepared to be a partner in care.
This two-part workshop is free and open to the public, but pre-registration is requested. For more information or to register, contact Phyllis Blackwell, Senior Center Manager, at 919-693-3383.
The Northern Granville Senior Center is located at 118 Highway 15 North in Stovall and one of three Senior Centers in Granville County, with additional centers in Oxford and in Creedmoor.
