05/01/2017

LONG BRANCH, N.J. – Monmouth Medical Center, in conjunction with Alzheimer’s New Jersey®, will host “Coping with Behavior Changes in Alzheimer’s Disease” on Monday, May 22 from 2 to 3 p.m. in Room 206 of the Stanley Building at Monmouth Medical Center, located at 300 Second Avenue in Long Branch.

Behavioral changes in Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia can pose concerns for family caregivers. As the disease progresses, behavior often becomes the primary way people with the disease communicate their needs. This free program, designed for caregivers of those with Alzheimer’s disease, will offer information about why people with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia experience behavior changes, what those behaviors mean and how to cope when behaviors are challenging.

There is no fee to attend this program but pre-registration is required. For more information or to register, please call Alzheimer’s New Jersey at 888-280-6055 or visit alznj.org.
