The Alzheimer's Association, Greater Illinois Chapter's educational program, Learning to Connect: Relating to the Person with Alzheimer's, is set for 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 29, at Radford Green at Sedgebrook, 960 Audubon Way in Lincolnshire. As Alzheimer's disease and other related dementias progress, friends and family members may find it difficult to spend time visiting the person with dementia. This program will provide insight into dementia and its effect on communication and behavior, and will introduce participants to techniques that can be used to make time spent more comfortable and meaningful for all concerned. Lauren Levin, manager, education and outreach, will present and take questions following the program. To register for this program offered at no cost, call (847) 933-2413 or register online at www.alz.org/illinois.
