Free Alzheimer’s care training workshops are being offered.

The sessions will be held from 6-8 p.m. on Sept. 17, Sept. 24, Oct. 9 and Oct.16 at the Home Instead Senior Care offices in Lewisburg and Williamsport.

Developed by Home Instead Senior Care, the Alzheimer’s or other dementias care program incorporates a hands-on approach to help families deal with the difficult behavioral changes that often are associated with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias.

During the workshop, program experts will teach caregivers how to manage behaviors, encourage engagement and care for themselves while caring for their loved one.
