Need to better understand dementia?

The Florida Department of Health’s Dementia Care and Cure Initiative, and Franklin County’s Elder Care Community Council, are teaming up with a free series on ways to gain a better understanding of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, and to learn about resources available to assist persons with dementia, their families, and caregivers.

Open to everyone, the series is held the second Thursday of every month from 11 a.m. to noon at Holy Family Senior Center, 203 7th St. Apalachicola.

On Thursday, April 11 the topic will be “Accessing Local Community Supports and Services for Individuals Living with Dementia and their Caregivers,” given by Marissa Henderson, MSW from Advantage Aging Solutions.
