WAUSAU – Each month, the Alzheimer’s Association offers family education programs across Wisconsin. These classes are designed to assist anyone with questions about Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia.
Programs are free and open to families, caregivers, and the general community and presented by an Alzheimer’s Association staff member or trained community volunteer.
“Caregiver Stress: Take Care of Yourself” provides a better understanding of the disease, the changes, and how they may affect the caregiving journey. Learn what stress is, how to identify stress, and initiate an action plan to ease caregiving stress.
