The Western New York Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association will hold a two-part brunch-and-learn educational series on April 15 and 22 for people who have been diagnosed with memory loss, mild cognitive impairment (MCI), or early stage dementia, and their loved ones.

The free classes, “Living with Early Stage Dementia or Memory Loss,” will take place from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Delavan Grider Community Center, 877 E. Delavan Ave., Buffalo. Brunch will be served on both dates.

“This two-part series will allow people to ask questions, learn more about the diagnosis, and discover the many resources available to them, in a comfortable and confidential setting,” said Maggie Concannon Meyers, care and support manager, who coordinates the MCI and early stage dementia programming at the WNY Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association.

Preregistration is required and can be done by calling 716-626-0600, ext. 313.

This program is funded through Dobrak & Fial Funds administered by the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo.
