• Hitting Alzheimer's Head-On, an informational meeting on dementia, will take place at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 1, at the First Baptist Church of McLouth. Sheryl Stemmons, a licensed social worker with a master’s degree in gerontology, will present an overview of dementia and Alzheimer’s. Learn the difference between Alzheimer’s and typical age-related changes; recognize warning signs; learn about the disease process and possible treatments; get support for caregivers. Become informed regarding understanding and caring for the memory-impaired elderly; and maintaining a dignified and effective relationship with a person suffering from this disability. The community is encouraged to attend this meeting. Bring a friend. Nearly everyone has a loved one who needs support.
