Coping with Dementia president and certified dementia practitioner Debbie Selsavage said, “Our ABC of Dementia workshop explains Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia in plain language, suggests techniques for becoming a better and less stressed care partner, and provides useful resources to families living with dementia. While the workshop is designed primarily for care partners and family members of a loved one living with dementia, everyone is welcome, including persons experiencing dementia.”

Due to the popularity of these workshops, reservations are encouraged. For more information or to reserve seats, call 352-422-3663 or e-mail deb@coping. today.
