Maintain your brain

December 2, 2005

Albany- National Alzheimers month ends, but the need for education continues as more and more people are diagnosed everyday with the disease. 

  Nancy Goode of the Alzheimer's Association says," Most people that have it start to notice memory loss, and have to depend on others for day to day operations." 

   Operations caregivers like Joan-Marie Barcus  say, "it's important for the caregiver to care for themselves and make sure that they too, are okay." 

    Some of the free services that the Alzheimers Association offer include: counseling, support group assistance, literature and more. 

   On Monday, December 12th, they plan to have a "Maintain Your Brain" workshop.  The event will be one hour and consist of healthy living and eating tips.  It will take place at 1512-1 Gillionville Road, Albany, GA 31707 at 10:00 AM.  For more information about their services you can contact #229-888-7676 or visit www.alzga.org.
