If you or a family member have recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or a related dementia, you are not alone.  Connecting with others and learning about the disease and current treatments may help you make informed choices about your health, develop positive coping strategies, and build a strong support network. This workshop offers individuals with early-stage Alzheimer’s disease and care partners valuable ideas and resources to help cope with changes, remain active, access support, and plan for the future. Participants may register for this free program by calling the Alzheimer’s Association at 973-586-4300.  More information on the Greater New Jersey Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association can be found at www.alz.org/alznj.
