Those caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia are welcome to free informational a Hospice of the Valley Dementia Program.

Dr. Maribeth Gallagher directs Hospice of the Valley’s Dementia Program and will presents “Understanding Dementia — A Challenging Journey” on Thursday, Feb. 3, at Grand Community Baptist Church, 18350 N. Goldwater Ridge Drive, Surprise.

Registration begins at 8:30 a.m., followed by program from 9 to noon. A continental breakfast will be provided.

Participants will:
• Understand dementia and how it progresses from early to advanced stages.
• Learn to develop strategies to make and maintain meaningful connections with the person with dementia.
• Further value the caregiver role and explore ways to reduce stress.

The Hospice of the Valley Dementia Program has received national and international awards for its innovative approaches to dementia care. Dr. Gallagher is a psychiatric nurse practitioner with a doctorate degree in nursing. Her commitment to improving dementia care was initially inspired by her own experiences as a family caregiver.

“With information, insight and support, caregivers are better able to manage their own well-being along with that of the person in their care,” she said.

All are welcome at this no-cost event. To reserve a spot, call 602-636-5396 or events2@hov.org
