In my ongoing commitment to helping individuals and families impacted by Alzheimer's disease or a related form of dementia, I am excited to have been asked to create a fifth community based Alzheimer's Awareness Event. Brandywine Assisted Living in Mahwah has brought me on to organize and oversee the Mayor's Alzheimer's/Dementia Symposium, offering a day long series of dementia related educational seminars on April 17th from 11:00-4:00pm.
This symposium is being offered as part of Mahwah Mayor Bill Laforet's Wellness Initiative. I applaud the Mayor for recognizing the need to support those challenged with dementia and their family caregivers and raising community awareness. The Mayor is actively working to create a demntia friendly community in Mahwah.
The symposium is free and open to all Mahwah residents and those who reside in surrounding areas.
