Dementia, memory loss, and Alzheimer’s greatly impacts individuals as well as their families and friends. Often people aren't sure how to connect or offer support to their loved ones. It can be frustrating and heartbreaking for everyone when communication and memory begin to fade. What resources are available to help educate and support? Here are some upcoming opportunities:

KCLS is happy to partner with Allyson Schrier in presenting: "How to Be Friends to Someone with Dementia.” Allyson’s program covers education, coping tools, and relatable anecdotes. One patron said this about her program, “This is extraordinary. Sums up everything I had to learn very slowly over six years with my Mom. I have forwarded this to a friend who is new to caregiving, Invaluable!” Watch a recording of Allyson's program on YouTube, opens a new window.
