Williamstown: Sweet Brook to offer program on ‘The Aging Brain’
In partnership with Home Instead Senior Care, Sweet Brook of Williamstown Rehabilitation and Nursing Centers will offer a program that addresses the important issue of memory loss and aging.
"The Aging Brain: Memory Loss -- What’s Normal and What’s Not" will be held at 10 a.m. Wednesday, June 25, at Sweet Brook, 1561 Cold Spring Road.
Dr. Jay Ellis and Bobbie Orsi, RN, will explore memory loss through an interactive discussion of the brain - how memory is formed - how memory loss occurs, and how to identify when forgetting is not normal.
There will be discussion about the benefits of early detection, risk factors, available treatments, and the importance of caring for the caregiver. While the program will provide much information about memory and the important signs of memory loss, it will focus on the concept of living fully as one ages.
There will be light refreshments, raffle prizes and a free gift bag for all participants.
Registration is required by June 20. Call Suzanne Desnoyers, RN, at (413) 458-8127 to register, or for more information.
