October 15: Know the 10 Signs of Alzheimer’s Disease

If you or someone you know is experiencing memory loss or behavioral changes, it’s time to learn the facts. Early detection of Alzheimer’s disease gives you a chance to begin drug therapy, enroll in clinical studies and plan for the future. This interactive workshop features video clips of people with Alzheimer’s disease. Experts from our local Alzheimer’s Association will present this information and be open to questions after the presentation.

 

October 22: A Fond Farewell

Guest speaker Jeanne McGill, CSA, CPC will present information on pre-planning a funeral. Statistics show that 70 percent of us are unprepared in one or more areas of personal responsibility in planning. Don’t be counted as one of those statistics! This seminar will give options as to what you need for funeral arrangements, the new laws about what you can do for the funeral arrangements at home and how to compare apples to apples when comparing costs. Can you buy your casket at Sam’s Club? Can ashes be spread at the Mall of America or any other public place? Be educated about innovative, creative and proper funeral preplanning.

 

October 29: Your Health Care Directive: Who Would Speak for You if You Couldn’t Speak for Yourself?

In the event of a sudden illness or injury, you may not be able to communicate your healthcare choices to your loved ones or your medical team.  Advance Care Planning – Honoring Choice is an ongoing process of evaluating and reflecting on your medical options in light of your values, beliefs, goals and current health status. Guest speakers from Fairview Health Services will present recently updated information and walk you through the process of advanced care planning and completing your health care directive. All ages are welcome and encouraged to join us!
