Brenda Hamilton, senior care consultant with the Maine Alzheimer’s Association, returns to Broad Bay Congregational United Church of Christ on Monday, Nov. 29, to continue a conversation about Alzheimer’s disease. In this presentation, Hamilton will emphasize the problems and needs faced by caregivers, but there will be time for questions on any concern related to Alzheimer’s.

At Hamilton’s October visit to Broad Bay, about 30 people learned some of the basics of Alzheimer’s, including the latest advances in medications which can, temporarily, slow progression of Alzheimer’s. According to the Alzheimer’s Association”2010 Alzheimer’s Disease Facts and Figures,” an estimated 5.3 million Americans have the disease, including 5.1 million people age 65 and older and 200,000 under 65, with younger-onset Alzheimer’s.

The Nov. 29 program runs from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the lower-level parish hall of Broad Bay, 941 Main St. Refreshments will be served. For more information, call 832-6898.
