UPCOMING EVENTS

We’re always cooking up something interesting for members of our greater community. From art exhibitions and open house brunches to our popular Just Ask educational seminars, find out what’s happening this month.

Alzheimer's and other dementias cause memory, thinking, and behavior changes that interfere with daily living. Alzheimer’s, a degenerative brain disease, is the most common form of dementia. However, dementia is not a specific disease, but rather a term that describes a group of symptoms related to memory and cognitive function.

Join Farmington Presbyterian Manor for 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s, a free virtual event, at 3 p.m. March 17 to learn about common warning signs of Alzheimer's and what symptoms to look for in yourself and others, as well as tips to approach someone who is experiencing changes in their memory, the benefit of early detection and diagnosis, and more.

Register online for 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s, at https://www.communityresourcefinder.org/ResourceView/Index?id=2106997&profileDefinitionId=93. When you click the registration link, you will be redirected to the Alzheimer’s Association website to complete the registration process. If this is your first time to RSVP for an Alzheimer’s Association event, the registration link on the Alzheimer’s site will prompt you to register with their site. Once you’ve completed this one-time site registration, you will be able to reserve your spot for this event, and future events, by logging in. Once your registration is processed, you will receive a unique link to the event with instructions for joining the webinar.

The event is one in a series of webinars exploring Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias and some of the most important topics of concern to caregivers and those who are experiencing the disease.

From February to November, we’ll explore a different topic each month through virtual presentations led by the Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Missouri.

The series is part of Farmington Presbyterian Manor’s Just Ask lifelong learning program, featuring topics and speakers of interest to seniors and their adult children. Future topics include effective communication strategies, understanding and responding to dementia-related behaviors and more.
