WHAT TO DO NOW IF YOU AND YOUR FAMILY ARE ON THE ALZHEIMER’S JOURNEY…

Guests:  Jennifer Bauer, Executive Director; Noreen Kralapp, Dementia outreach Specialist in Dane County, Alzheimer’s & Dementia Alliance of Wisconsin

When one person is diagnosed with memory impairment, Alzheimer’s disease, or a related form of dementia, the impact is felt by their family and the community as a whole. The journey is a challenging one, and the numbers are increasing.

The Alzheimer’s & Dementia Alliance of Wisconsin is an organization that serves communities in 15 counties in South Central Wisconsin providing programs, services and resources to people who are on the Alzheimer’s journey.

On this program, Jennifer Bauer and Noreen Kralapp describe the breadth of educational and support services they provide and how their programs are bringing joy and minimizing the symptoms and stress inherent in a diagnosis of dementia.

To support the Alliance’s free services, eight Alzheimer’s Walks will be held over five weeks this fall beginning September 7 in Green County. The Walks continue through October 5 in Columbia/Marquette Counties, Dane County, Iowa County, Richland County, Sauk County, Grant County and Crawford County.
