Home Instead Senior Care offices to host Alzheimer’s Learning Day events

The number of Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease is expected to triple — from 5 million today to more than 16 million by 2050. As the number of people with Alzheimer’s and other dementias increases, so too, will the need for communities to adapt and become more accessible to those living with the disease.

Home Instead Senior Care offices are giving area residents the opportunity to learn more about this disease and its effect on local families by hosting an Alzheimer’s Learning Day event at 2 p.m. Sept. 26 at STEP Inc., 2138 Lincoln St.

Based on input from aging and dementia experts, the free programs will provide community members with the education and support needed to interact with and care for those with Alzheimer’s and other dementias.

The free training in Williamsport is among many sessions happening across North America to encourage communities to learn more about the disease, educate others and share what they have learned. For more information, visit AlzLearn.com.
