What You Need to Know: Dementia is a global and family crisis

CROSSVILLE — The second Community Information Event (C.I.E.) of 2014 will be presented by Fairfield Glade Resident Services (FGRS) on Monday, July 14. Appropriately titled “Memory Care,” this event will discuss the diagnosis that can strike dread in the hearts of families when they hear that a loved one has developed Alzheimer’s disease. Statistics show that 1 in 9 people aged 65 years and older has Alzheimer’s disease; and 1 in 3 people 85 years of age or older have the disease. In America alone, someone develops Alzheimer’s disease every 67 seconds.

The featured speaker for this event will be John Dougherty, M.D., co-chair of the medical board of the Pat Summitt Foundation, who will educate those in attendance about the latest information regarding the diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer’s. Other speakers include Rae Hozer on Managing Behavioral Challenges Effectively; Andrew Dougherty on Non-Pharmaceutical treatments for Alzheimer’s/Dementia; and Marie Ferran on Elder Law: Financial Resource Protection.

This C.I.E will have something for everyone. Come to learn about what can and is being done to help families care for a loved one with Alzheimer’s. There will be extensive information about Alzheimer’s TN, an organization that exclusively supports residents here in East Tennessee. An update from The Pat Summitt Foundation will provide information about their status and activities.

Attendees will have the opportunity to visit more than 25 staffed booths loaded with informational resources and offering help to those who have an Alzheimer’s member in their family. These booths will be open before the program starts, during the break and after the program has concluded, so come a little early to afford yourselves of the expertise and care they can provide.

This C.I.E. will be held at the Community & Conference Center in Fairfield Glade from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m., July 14. It is in support of the Pat Summit Foundation and the local Alzheimer Support Groups of TN. “We Back Pat” – both Pat Summitt and Fairfield Glade’s Pat Davis, who is co-chair of the third annual Plateau Alzheimer’s of TN Walk on Saturday, Sept. 9 starting at 9 a.m. in Centennial Park in Crossville.

Don’t remain in the dark and fearful about this disease. Alzheimer’s is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States and the second largest contributor to death among older Americans. Knowledge is Power, so don’t go unprepared or fearful. Help for Alzheimer’s does exist.

Remember, “Together We Can Enhance Our Quality of Life.”
