You are not alone – Learn more about Alzheimer’s

The diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease is life-changing and leads to many questions. What will this mean for you and your family? How do you plan for the future? Where can you get the help you need?

The Alzheimer’s Association Teaching Learning Institute is offering a program in which you will hear from others who have been where you are discussing what you need to know, what you need to plan, and what you can do to develop and work with your care team.

The program is called, Living with Alzheimer’s: For People with Alzheimer’s. It will take place at 10 a.m., Feb. 4 and Feb. 11 at the Lexington Alzheimer’s Association Office, 465 E. High Street, Suite 200, Lexington, Ky.

Registration is required and a $5 donation is suggested. To register, call 1-800-272-3900 or email


In addition, if you or someone you know is affected by Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, the time for legal and financial planning is now.

A workshop, Legal and Financial Planning for Alzheimer’s Disease, is for anyone who would like to know more about what legal and financial issues to consider and how to put plans in place.

The program is designed for family caregivers.

It will take place from 2-4 p.m., Feb. 5 at the Lexington Public Library, Eagle Creek Branch, 101 N. Eagle Creek Drive, Lexington, Ky., and from 2-4 p.m., Feb. 11 at the Madison County Public Library, 319 Chestnut Street, Berea, Ky.
