Alzheimer's Educational Event

 

On December 10th, the Hannah B.G. Shaw Home invited Middleboro and surrounding communities to a free seminar on Alzheimer’s disease, presented by one of Boston’s top neurologists, Dr. Albert A. Ackil.

Dr. Ackil described, from a physician’s point of view, how Alzheimer’s disease presents in an individual, as well as the diagnostics and treatment options available. The information disseminated was invaluable to families and care givers who suspect or know that their loved one may be suffering from Alzheimer’s.

The event also brought together people of the community that are experiencing the same difficulties. Attendees shared their experiences and support with one another--recognizing that dealing with this devastating disorder is not something that is easily accomplished alone.
