November is National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month

November is a time to pause and recognize those living with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers including friends and family who experience the disease every day.  The Kerr Tar Area Agency on Aging is planning events during the month to celebrate, advocate and remember our loved ones who have experienced this condition.  Currently, two events are planned in Warren and Vance Counties to recognize National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month. The Warren County Senior Center is hosting a Candlelight Reflection Ceremony on November 18th at 11a.m. Candlelight Reflections is a ceremony remembering those we have lost and honoring individuals currently living with Alzheimer’s or other dementias, their dedicated caregivers and in recognition of National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month and National Caregivers Month. On November 15th, a Memory Café is planned at the Vance County Senior Center for member caregivers. A Memory Café is a safe and comfortable space where caregivers and their loved ones can socialize, listen to music, play games, and enjoy other activities. The Café provides mutual support where loved ones can simply enjoy a meal and fellowship.  Click here for more details.
