Here is a fantastic educational opportunity for Central Ohioans – The Central Ohio Alzheimer’s Association’s Monthly “First Fridays Club” begins in February.

It’s your chance to hear physicians and other subject matter experts discuss topics of interest to caregivers. Our friends at the Central Ohio ALZ Association even provide respite care during the luncheon and lecture!

February’s luncheon is a caregiver panel discussion.

“Planning, Coping with Stress and the Importance of Staying Connected”

Friday, February 1st, 2013
Time: 11:30-1:00PM

Location: The Worthington United Methodist Church, 600 N. High Street, Worthington, OH, 43085

The cost for the lunch and lecture is $5.00. The cost for professionals requiring CEU’s is $10.00

In March, Dr. Donald Freidenberg (my mom’s neurologist) will talk about differentiating between dementia and normal aging. He’s a fascinating speaker.

All of the info you need is included below; registration is required and there is a $5 fee for each month’s event ($10 for professionals needing CEU credits). Please share this with anyone who might find it useful. Each month offers a new topic.
