Living With Alzheimer's series kicks off on Alzheimer's learning day: VDEO
It is Alzheimer’s learning day and an assisted living facility in Salisbury is taking steps to educate the public about the disease.
Thursday marked the first of a three part Alzheimer’s series hosted by Lakeside at Mallard Landing.
The series was created to educate Salisbury locals on how to care for loved ones suffering from Alzheimer’s.
Thursday’s event taught people how to identify common triggers for behaviors associated with Alzheimer’s. Some of the common behaviors that were listed were restlessness, distress, aggression and repetition.
At the event, attendants were taken through situations where someone with Alzheimer’s was displaying one of those behaviors, and then attendants were shown how to properly respond to the specific behavior.
