Free Alzheimers education offered in Spanish

-A A +A

 

The Alzheimer’s Association, New Mexico Chapter will present a course in Spanish specifically designed for people caring for loved ones with Alzheimer’s or other dementia. 

“Cuidando con Respeto” is an intensive training will meet from 1-5 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at San Isidro Catholic Church, 3552 Agua Fria St. in Santa Fe. Los Alamos residents are encouraged to attend. 

These sessions will teach caregivers practical techniques for interacting with loved ones with Alzheimer’s, for long-term planning and for coping with associated stresses. 

The course also explains the signs, behaviors and pathology of Alzheimer’s disease.

The course attempts to impart burnout-avoidance methods to a population, which is under chronic emotional duress. 

More than 60 percent of family caregivers for people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia rate their emotional stress from care giving as high or very high, and about 33 percent of Alzheimer’s and dementia caregivers report symptoms of depression.
