Presented by Patty O’Brian, North Central Regional Director of the Alzheimer’s Association CT Chapter

 The New McLean and the Alzheimer’s Association will be hosting this free seminar for caregivers of those with dementia  in The Burkholder Community Center.

The hectic holiday season can fluster anyone, but for people with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, the noisy crowds, breaks in the routine and unfamiliar visitors can trigger extreme anxiety and spoil festivities for everyone. During the presentation, Patty O’Brian will offer effective strategies to help overcome challenges often associated with the holiday season, and help ensure a happy holiday for all.

Light refreshments will be served. To RSVP, or for more information on this event, or any of the memory care programs at The New McLean, please call Karen Murphy at (860) 658-3786 or visit www.McLeanMemoryCare.org.
