The Alzheimer’s Association Greater Indiana Chapter is hosting a Community Forum in Valparaiso to better understand the needs of the community and reach more residents affected by the disease. The public is invited to come together to ask questions about Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, share their personal experiences, learn about available resources and discover volunteer opportunities.
An estimated 2,700 people in Porter County are currently living with Alzheimer’s disease and another 8,000 are caregivers. Nearly 27,000 residents are over the age of 65, putting them at increased risk of developing the disease.
Community Forums are hosted by the Alzheimer’s Association in communities across the country, where families are invited to come together with Association staff and volunteers to mobilize in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease.
The meeting details are below. Light refreshments will be provided.
