Alzheimer’s: Moving Someone Safely

The Together With Alzheimer’s Support Group
is fortunate to have
Trish Scott
former caregiver and physical therapist
join us on Wednesday, August 30th
at Sacred Heart Parish Center
from 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Trish will demonstrate safe and effective techniques for positioning your loved one (i.e., moving that person from place to place).
Having worked with persons with dementia for thirty years, Trish is a wealth of information about dementia care. Even if your loved one doesn’t require special techniques to help position him or her, please plan to attend; I’m sure you’ll get something important out of this presentation.
For more information, please contact Catherine Gentile: ezine@catherinegentile.com
