Understanding and Responding to Dementia Related Behaviors

Presented by the Alzheimer's Association

Behavior is a powerful form of communication and is one of the primary ways for people with dementia to communicate their needs and feelings as the ability to use language is lost. However, some behaviors can present real challenges for caregivers to manage.  Join us to learn to decode behavioral messages, identify common behavior triggers, and learn strategies to help intervene with some of the most common behavioral challenges of Alzheimer's disease.

American Empress: The Life and Times of Marjorie Merriweather Post

Malinda Craig of Margaret Garfield Circle will be presenting at the Sangamo Club

One of the most dazzling and sybaritic women in 20th century America was also a native of Springfield, IL.  I am referring to Marjorie Merriweather Post, the sole heir to the General Foods fortune.  She was born on March 15, 1887 at 541 Black Ave, in a home owned by her grandparents, Charles Rollin and Carrie Post.  In 1893, her family home was purchased by the King’s Daughter’s Organization and operated by them as a home for aging women who were unable to care for themselves. Marjorie’s father, C. W. Post, contributed funds to help King’s Daughter’s establish an endowment fund to support the charitable function as a memorial to his mother, Carrie Post.  Over the years of its operation, Marjorie also made contributions, including a contribution to help make possible the addition to the home in 1921.

Sangamo Club at 227 E. Adams St, Springfield, IL 2701. Lunch is $22 and reservations can be made by calling 217 544-1793.

Know the 10 Signs

Presented by the Alzheimer's Assocation

The warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease are often dismissed as side effects of normal aging. If you or someone you know is experiencing memory loss or behavioral changes, it’s time to learn the facts. Early detection gives you a chance to begin drug therapy, enroll in clinical studies and plan for the future. Attend this training to learn the 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s disease. We’ll separate myth from reality and address commonly-held fears about Alzheimer’s in America. Hear from people who have the disease and find out how to recognize the signs in yourself and others.

This program is 1.5 hours and includes time for questions and answers.
