Are you or a loved one taking medications for dementia and/or Parkinson’s disease? Which drugs can delay the disease process best? Are you concerned about side effects? How do you know whether these drugs work? Should they be taken at specific times? With or without food? What about interactions with other medications? How do you gain control after hearing that you or your loved one has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s or dementia?
It can be challenging to manage the complexities of treatment, including medications needed to address symptoms. If you are a caregiver, friend or family member of someone with Parkinson’s disease and/or dementia, you want useable information that can help you make the best decisions possible to improve the quality of life of the one you love.
Ladue Pharmacy and the Adult Day Center at the Jewish Community Center are pleased to announce a partnership to support families and friends who care for someone with these diseases. On July 18 at 7:00 pm, these two leading service providers will hold a free event at Deer Creek Café called “Let’s Talk About It,” a series designed to engage, inform and inspire the community to come together and talk about difficult health care issues that impact all of us.
Angie Kloeppel, Pharm. D. of Ladue Pharmacy will make a short presentation about the medications on the market for Parkinson’s and dementia and then engage the group in a question and answer session to help the community better support their loved ones.
Adult Day Center Director, Maggie Menefee, MSW, will also be available to discuss how the Adult Day Center at the J helps individuals with memory problems and physical illnesses maintain their independence.
Talking about complex health care matters can be challenging. However, arming yourself with valuable information and knowing you have a support system to help you plan for the future is essential.
The event is free, and reservations are requested. Contact Adult Day Center Caseworker, Sarah Zoller, MSG, MA, at 314-442-3261 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
