CHEYENNE – The Wyoming Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association has announced that, from now through May, it will be hosting a series of workshops presented by local experts.

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia today, and it not simply a normal aspect of aging, but a progressive disease that, at present, has no cure.

Extensive research has gone into learning more about the relationship between strokes, or cerebrovascular accidents, and dementia. While there is still always more to learn, a great deal of information has been discovered already, and the Alzheimer’s Association is inviting the public to a free educational workshop titled “Strokes in Those Living with Dementia.” The presenters will be Dr. Tracie Caller, director of the Cheyenne Regional Medical Center epilepsy program, and Hope N. Robinson, BSN, RN, the CRMC Stroke Program manager.

“Strokes in Those Living with Dementia” will begin at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 20, in the Willow Room of the Laramie County Library, 2200 Pioneer Ave. in Cheyenne.

Those interested in attending should register to join this free workshop by calling 800-272-3900 or going online to https://www.communityresourcefinder.org/ProviderSearch/Search?ProfileDefinitionId=93&location=82001.

For more information on this and other upcoming workshops, call 307-287-6569 or reach out to the 24/7 Alzheimer’s Association Helpline at 800-272-3900.
