MemoryCare, a program to assess memory and cognitive functioning, will present its Professional Caregiver Education Program curriculum in a three-part series with one part beginning Aug. 9.

Parts two and three will be given Aug. 16 and Aug. 23, respectively. The sessions will all be held at the Haywood County Administrative Building at 81 Elmwood Way in Waynesville. Each session will be four hours long.

The series is directed at professional caregivers of persons with dementia, and will be taught by Terry Mulligan, PA-C, and Margaret Noel, MD.

This course “is designed to enhance the professional caregiver’s understanding of the essential aspects of dementia care, including the common types of dementia, behavior management, treatment options, risk reduction, and end of life issues,” said Dr. Noel.

Registration is limited. Participants are eligible for up to 1.2 Continuing Education Credits (CEUs) through the Mountain Area Health Education Center. The cost is $10 per participant or $25 if CEUs are desired. Information is also available online at www.memorycare.org. The registration deadline is Aug. 5.
