Alzheimer’s Association announces January family education programs
Each month, the Alzheimer’s Association offers family education programs across Wisconsin. These classes are designed to assist anyone who has questions about Alzheimer’s disease or related dementias. All programs are free-of-charge and open to families, caregivers and the general community. Each program is presented by an Alzheimer’s Association staff member or trained community volunteer. These programs are made possible, in part, by funds raised through the Walk to End Alzheimer’s®.
