Safety and dementia discussion slated for April 18

By Stefanie Donahue

The Alzheimer Society of Washington is inviting the public to take part in a discussion about safety and dementia from 5 to 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 18.

Three speakers are on deck to attend the discussion and will cover topics related to driving, home safety, wandering and medication.

“These topics can be uncomfortable to address but become necessary to ensure safety for everyone involved,” read the Alzheimer Society of Washington’s online description.

AARP safe driver and state coordinator Judi Kipling will talk about how dementia can impact driving; volunteer with Project Lifesaver and the Alzheimer Society of Washington, Tom Oliver, will give an overview of Project Lifesaver; and a representative from Hoagland Pharmacy will cover issues related to
medication safety.

Anyone can stop by the discussion, which will take place at St. Luke’s Community Health Education Center, located at 3333 Squalicum Parkway in Bellingham.
