This program will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on February 11, 2017, at the El Dorado Hills Senior Center located at 990 Lassen Lane in El Dorado Hills. This program will help community members better understand dementia, learn about preventative measures and the latest research, and how to support those who have the disease.

"We hope to address the fears and issues we see on a day to day basis," says Jillien Smith, Program Supervisor with Adult Day Services. "We realize that knowledge is power and we are excited to offer supportive tools for people with dementia and their care partners." 

The El Dorado County Family Caregiver Support Program, El Dorado Community Health Centers, the Alzheimer's Association and Del Oro Community Resource Center will provide resources for the workshop and also have staff available to discuss their programs and answer questions.  

Class size is limited and registration is required. The workshop is offered at no cost; a $10 suggested donation will be accepted. Please call (530) 621-6180 or (916) 358-3560 to register or for questions.
