There are over 76,000 Oregonians suffering with Alzheimer’s and dementia; and that number is expect to rise by 20% in just a few years.

 

Todd Sensenbach with Home Instead Senior Care will be conducting a one day free workshop geared to caregivers and families with loves ones suffering from the disease.

 

He says as our healthcare continues to help people to live longer, there will be more instances surfacing.

"Really there isn't any kind of cure. So what we're trying to do is we're trying to help family caregivers understand the disease, and then understand how to help their loved one have the fullest possible life and how to handle any challenging behaviors that they might be experiencing. And how to keep them as healthy and as active as possible."

 

Sensenbach says the workshop will be at the Partners in Care facility in Bend this Friday from 8-30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. It's free, but you must have a reservation to attend. Call Pertners in Care to reserve your spot. (541-382-5882)
