National Alzheimer’s speaker Nov. 7

Karen Stobbe, featured speaker at the 2003 National Alzheimer’s Disease Education Conference, will present her program, “In the Moment,” from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Nov. 7 at the Clock Tower Resort Conference Center, 7801 E. State St.

Stobbe will help caregivers (professional and family) to gain a better understanding of how the illness affects the way one works with those suffering with dementia. She uses a unique and interactive approach to help seminar attendees gain a working knowledge of the disease with emphasis on flexibility and creativity.

Seminar content will include communication tips and understanding why behaviors occur and how to problem-solve new strategies to meet these challenges.

Registration fee for the seminar (includes lunch and materials) is $65. CEUs are available for nursing home administrators, licensed social workers and licensed counselors for an additional $10 fee.

This educational seminar is offered through the Alzheimer’s Association. Information or to register, contact Bonnie Beam at 815-484-1300.
