The Home Assistance Referral Team is hosting a seminar titled “Understanding Alzheimer’s and Dementia.” The free event is being offered to all caregivers enrolled in HART, and is also open to the public. It will be held from 6:30-8 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 28, at the John Duke Center, 1201 Hyde Park Blvd., Niagara Falls. Light refreshments will be served.

The panel of speakers include Alicia L. Scott, DNP, NP-C, Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center; Andrea Koch, MA, director of education and training, Alzheimer’s Association; and Abby Dearden, senior fitness specialist, and music and dance therapist.

HART Executive Director Christine S. O’Hara said, “The seminar will focus on basic information on the difference between Alzheimer’s and dementia, stages, risk factors, and FDA-approved treatments. We hosted a seminar on Alzheimer’s and dementia in early summer in Lewiston, and the turnout was excellent. We hope to have another great turnout, as we host this second seminar in Niagara Falls.”

Call the HART office at 716-754-8313 to reserve a spot, or for more information.

HART is a free referral service that connects seniors and others with qualified caregivers, allowing them to remain independent in their own homes.
