FREWSBURG - Seminars for those who have been diagnosed with either Alzheimer's or Parkinson's disease or who want to know more about either illness will be held at the Frewsburg Rest Home.
"Understanding Alzheimer's," will be held Wednesday with a 2 p.m. afternoon session and a 7 p.m. evening session.
"Understanding Parkinson's Disease" will be Dec. 12 with a 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. session. Each session is an hour long and held in the second-floor recreation room at the rest home.
The seminars are being provided through a grant by the Erie 2-Chautauqua-Cattaraugus BOCES.
Both topics are guaranteed to be of interest to personal and professional caregivers. Both seminars are designed to provide guidelines for dealing with those who have the disease and highlight easily used techniques to manage behavior and improve the quality of life for those afflicted.
Seats are limited at the 2 p.m. sessions because it is a mandatory in-service for Frewsburg Rest Home staff. Refreshments will be available at both sessions and the program will start on time. Participants from the community are encouraged to use the visitor's parking lot on the right-hand side facing the building and the main entrance at the back of the lot. For reservations, call Dennis Bechmann, Frewsburg Rest Home administrator, at 569-3095 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Frewsburg Rest Home for Adults is an 80-bed adult care facility providing 24-hour, seven-day-a-week care. The facility has been operated by the Sischo family since 1974.
