Know the 10 Signs: Early Detection Matters - Alzheimer's Association
Monday, October 72:00—3:30 PMChildren's RoomBarrington Public Library105 Ramsdell Lane, Barrington, NH, 03825
Alzheimer's and other dementias cause memory, thinking and behavior problems that interfere with daily living. Join us to learn how to recognize common signs of the disease; how to approach someone about memory concerns; the importance of early detection and benefits of a diagnosis; possible tests and assessments for the diagnostic process, and Alzheimer's Association resources.
Come and hear Anne Romney speak about this complex and difficult disease. Anne has been a volunteer presenter for both the Maine and NH/MA chapters of the Alzheimer’s Association for the past 9 years. With a background in education and group facilitation, she has used her personal experience with dementia in her family and her professional skills to help support others who are dealing with this enormous challenge.
In addition to presenting programs, Anne has led Legacy Storytelling programs that bring people in the early stage of dementia together with student scribes who listen and write up the memories that are shared. Anne has training in support groups for caregivers and sees each program as an opportunity to both educate, support and provide resources to those who participate. Anne has an M Ed in Counseling from Lesley University and lives in Portsmouth, NH.
