The Alzheimer’s Foundation of America (AFA) will host a free educational program to help caregivers learn how to help prevent the potentially dangerous behavior of wandering among individuals with Alzheimer’s disease.

Participants will learn about Alzheimer’s, how to identify the common causes of wandering, behaviors which may indicate greater risks, and how to reduce the chances of wandering and enhance safety.

Free memory screenings will also be available.

Registration is free and open to all.
