Alzheimer’s Texas hosts Lunch N' Learn

Tuesday, July 17, 2018

It is estimated 380,000 Texans are currently living with Alzheimer’s disease. In an effort to increase disease awareness, provide community education to caregivers and support those affected by the disease, Alzheimer’s Texas will host an educational Lunch N’ Learn in Kyle on July 27 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at  the New Haven Assisted Living of Kyle, 107 Creekside Tr.

Stephen Catoe, Positive Approach to Care validation therapy trainer and Alzheimer’s Texas education specialist, will present quality education on topics such as ever-changing roles, rounding up your posse, and finding direction on your journey. Techniques from this class may help improve quality of life as well as success in caregiving.

The Lunch N’ Learn program is the centerpiece of Alzheimer’s Texas' rural education and awareness outreach efforts. The goals of the program are to provide education that is not readily available in the community, connect with local constituents, provide on-site care consultations, and open doors for the development of future programs. As with all of Alzheimer’s Texas' services, there is no charge to attend and a light lunch will be provided.  

Register by calling 512-241-0420 or send an email to VCardenas@TXAlz.org.
