The hectic holiday season can fluster anyone, but for people with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, the noisy crowds, breaks in the routine and unfamiliar visitors can trigger extreme anxiety and spoil festivities for everyone. A free program on this topic will be held Tuesday, Dec. 4, 3 to 4 p.m., at Arbor Rose at Jerome Home, 975 Corbin Ave. Patty O’Brian, dementia specialist, Hartford HealthCare Center for Healthy Aging, will offer effective strategies to help overcome challenges often associated with the holiday season with the goal to achieve a happier holiday for all. Hartford HealthCare Center for Healthy Aging is sponsoring.
Seating is limited and reservations are required. To RSVP, call Arbor Rose, 860.229.3707.
