May 15, 2024

WARREN, Pa. – The Warren Forest Higher Education Council is offering a free educational opportunity for the community.

“Alzheimer’s 101,” a discussion led by Jennifer Bliss of Warren Senior Helpers, will take place on Friday, May 17, from 10 a.m. to Noon at the Council’s facilities at 589 Hospital Drive.

The class aims to provide support, resources, and information about different forms of dementia, with a particular focus on Alzheimer’s disease. Whether attendees are caregivers, family members, or individuals concerned about themselves or someone else showing early signs of the disease, this discussion offers a safe space to learn and connect.

“We are excited to host this important discussion led by Jennifer Bliss,” said Donna Smith, Program Manager at the Warren Forest Higher Education Council. “Alzheimer’s disease impacts numerous individuals and families in our community, and this class offers crucial information and support to help navigate its challenges.”

Bliss, an experienced professional from Senior Helpers, will lead the discussion, sharing insights into the different stages of Alzheimer’s disease and offering practical strategies for supporting individuals facing changes. The class will emphasize a positive approach, focusing on what those with dementia can do rather than what they cannot.

Topics covered will include quality of life, engaging activities, area resources, and support groups for further assistance. Attendees will also learn how to advocate for the individuals they care for, ensuring they receive the support and understanding they deserve.

The Alzheimer’s 101 class is free and open to all community members. Pre-registration is required. To reserve your spot or for more information, contact Warren Hi-Ed at 814-723-3222, or register online at www.hi-ed.org.
