The Alzheimer's Association, Northwest Ohio Chapter, is accepting enrollees for a group version of "Reducing Disabilities in Alzheimer's Disease" (RDAD).
This program brings together persons who have Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia with their family caregivers and knowledgeable Alzheimer's Association staff. Participants will meet ten times, mid-September through October. The entire group will do gentle exercises and separate education and strategy sessions will be offered for specific changes that the caregivers are experiencing.
One group will meet in Toledo, and another in Lima.
Pre-screening and pre-registration is required. Call 1-800-272-3900 to sign up.
RDAD is a combined project of the Alzheimer's Association, Northwest Ohio Chapter and the Department of Aging and the Benjamin Rose Institute on Aging. The RDAD program is designed to help teach older adults who may suffer from memory problems how to do some simple exercises to improve their overall health. The program also teaches family members about symptoms to watch for and how to care for persons with memory problems. This program hopes to improve the ability of the person with memory problems to carry out activities of daily living while also helping family members provide assistance to their relative.
