WorkLife to host series on middle stage Alzheimer's

September 30, 2011

The second part of the education series conducted by the Alzheimer's Association begins Oct. 11, hosted by WorkLife Programs and designed to provide valuable information to both those who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers.

Middle Stage Alzheimer's Disease
Oct. 11, 18, 25 (Tuesdays) -- 6-8 p.m. Stewart Center, Room 204.

In this series, caregivers will learn the symptoms and care needs associated with the middle stage of Alzheimer's and learn about the relationship changes that occur in this stage. Ways to maximize safety, prepare for emergencies and access respite care will be discussed, as well as effective ways to provide personal care and manage challenging behaviors.

A series on the late stage of Alzheimer's disease will begin Nov. 8.

Purdue employees and their spouses/same-sex domestic partners will register for this offering by going to and logging in with their career account and password. The program is also open to the community.

Those who registered for and attended the early stage sessions are automatically registered for the middle stage sessions.

To register for these or other offerings, go to and log in with your career account and password, or call WorkLife Programs at 49-45461.
