Seats still available for “Dementia Conversations” workshop on Sept. 27

The Wake Forest Renaissance Centre for the Arts has been hosting a series of seminars since April designed to raise awareness about Alzeheimer’s disease and related dementias. Each event in the 2018 Understanding Dementia series has offered residents the opportunity to learn about dozens of dementia-related programs, services, products and resources – all in one location.

The series concludes Thursday, Sept. 27, with “Dementia Conversations.” The workshop will take place from 9:30-11 a.m. inside the Renaissance Centre, 405 S. Brooks St. During the session, attendees will learn how to have honest and caring conversations with family members about deciding when to stop driving, going to the doctor and making legal and financial plans.

The workshop is free, but registration is required by visiting

The Renaissance Centre is presenting the series in collaboration with the Alzheimer's Association of Eastern North Carolina and Wake Forest SING as part of an ongoing effort to establish Wake Forest as a dementia-friendly community.
