Alzheimer’s and other dementias are on the rise, prompting To Your Health of Western Mountains Senior College to bring back Mark Pechenik of the Maine Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association to speak on “Dementia Conversations.” This program will help people expand their knowledge about how these conditions affect family members and friends. Those who already have loved ones beginning to experience dementia will find the program especially helpful.
Pechenik is well known to the To Your Health audience, having presented two well-received programs over the past two years including, “Know the Ten Signs of Alzheimer’s” and “Healthy Habits for a Healthier You.”
Pechenik has served as Director of Community Outreach and Engagement for the Maine Alzheimer’s Association for the past three years. In this role, he develops essential connections between the Maine Chapter and the Maine community.
The program, which is free and open to the public, will be held on Thursday, October 6 from 4:30 to 6:00 pm at the West Parish Congregational Church. It is presented as a community service by To Your Health of Western Mountains Senior College with the collaboration of the Bethel Family Health Center, MSAD#44/Continuing Education, and the Maine Alzheimer’s Association.
