West Tennessee Healthcare’s Senior Services Department, West Tennessee Neuroscience and Spine Center, along with the Alzheimer’s Community of West Tennessee, Americare, Home Instead Senior Care, and Tennessee Health Management invite the public to attend the Dementia Experience on Thursday evening, August 16, 2018 at 5:30 p.m. at the Jackson-Madison County General Hospital J. W. Barnes Conference Center.

The Dementia Experience provides participants an insight into the world of dementia by simulating the symptoms of dementias, including Alzheimer’s Disease. The program will offer answers to questions often asked by caregivers and family members, including “Why does my loved one with Alzheimer’s Disease act as they do?” “What is my loved one feeling as he or she progresses with Alzheimer’s Disease?” and “What limitations does my loved one face with Alzheimer’s Disease?” The answers to these and other questions will allow caregivers to become more compassionate and understanding as they care for their patient or loved one on a daily basis.

To register for the event, please contact the West Tennessee Healthcare Senior Services office by calling 731-541-8757 or emailing Regina.Smith@wth.org. Registration is required. Space is limited.
