Memory loss kept in mind at Nashua workshop

April 8, 2014 by  

An upcoming workshop in Nashua will help locals to identify when the little lapses of memory that affect their daily life could become a problem. Though memory loss is often associated with old age, ‘Forgetfulness: When Should I Be Concerned?’ is open to people of all ages.

With people living longer and becoming more susceptible to memory problems, the center hosting this course may have used poster printing and other printing services to advertise the workshop to residents of this community and the surrounding areas.

The workshop seeks to address those moments people have when they cannot remember where they have placed things, or what the directions are to locations they have visited before. In this class, guests will learn about when they should become concerned about dementia.
Gerontological Nurse Practitioner Peggy Dorson, who has more than 25 years of experience in this field, will speak about what dementia is and what guests can do to prepare themselves should they become affected by it. Registration is required and this session is open to caregivers, as well as seniors.

Admission is free, although attendees must register. The workshop will be happening on Monday, April 14, at 1:00 pm at the Nashua Senior Activity Center located at 70 Temple Street. To learn more, or to register, please visit the Southern New Hampshire Services website.
