Seniors Helping Seniors of Morris County Sponsors Alzheimer’s Association Community Educational Seminar
Seniors Helping Seniors recently teamed up with the Alzheimer’s Association of New Jersey to provide the community with a complimentary seminar – “Basics – Memory Loss, Dementia and Alzheimer’s”. The event was held at the Library of the Chathams on the evening of Wednesday, June 18.
Amy Matthews, Associate Director, Education and Training, spoke on behalf of the Alzheimer’s Association Greater New Jersey Chapter. Amy did a brilliant job of engaging the audience while providing basic information that everyone needs to know about memory loss issues. The different types of dementia, risk factors, obtaining a diagnosis, current research, and planning for the future were discussed.
Seniors Helping Seniors was proud to sponsor this event, which was well-attended by members of the community, including some of our own client families! Doris Dorey, co-owner of Seniors Helping Seniors, also had the pleasure of speaking with the audience about how Seniors Helping Seniors can provide assistance in caring for a loved one who is suffering from Alzheimer’s or dementia.
“An additional benefit to families is all of our caregivers are seniors who can better relate to the needs of other seniors who are not always able to fully care for themselves,” Dorey said. “Our goals are to provide the right amount of care needed, have our caregivers develop personal relationships with our senior clients and enhance their overall quality of life.”
