Dementia education, support

Beginning March 23, the Institute of Gerontology, based in the College of Public Health, will host a program for people with early-stage dementia and their caregivers. The eight-session educational and support program will be held on Mondays from 1-2:30 p.m.

Open free to the public, the program is limited to people in the early stages of dementia and their care partners. While there is no ­registration deadline, seating is limited, and registration will close once the program reaches attendance capacity. The sessions will be led by representatives from the Alzheimer’s Association and UGA’s Cognitive Aging Research and Education Center.

To register, call the Alzheimer’s Association 1-800-272-3900.
