Alzheimer’s Association to host community forum on May 3rd

ABERDEEN, S.D.(Press Release) – The Alzheimer’s Association South Dakota Chapter will present a community forum and listening session on May 3 from 9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. at the Aberdeen Senior Center dining room at 1303 7th Avenue SE in Aberdeen. The session is designed for those interested in learning more about the available support for families impacted by dementia and Alzheimer’s in the Brown County area — and having their voices heard about what resources are needed.

Participants will learn about Alzheimer’s, dementia and memory loss and hear about the services of the Alzheimer’s Association. There will be an opportunity for discussion on the best ways to help those affected by Alzheimer’s and how more people can be reached through the various services.

“With more than 18,000 South Dakotans living with Alzheimer’s, community sessions such as this are so important,” said Leslie Morrow, State Executive Director of the Alzheimer’s Association South Dakota Chapter. “We want Brown County residents to know what kinds of resources are available to them, and find out how best to serve the community.”

Registration for this event is available by phone: 1-800-272-3900.
