Learn Preparation for Alzheimer’s Care in Ocean County Library Virtual Program

October 05, 2022

TOMS RIVER – Understand the beginnings of Alzheimer’s Disease and know the steps for effective, compassionate care through a virtual program series by the Alzheimer’s Association Greater New Jersey Chapter, to be presented by the Ocean County Library.

“Living with Alzheimer’s for Caregivers: Understanding Early Stage” will take place online at 2 PM Wednesday, November 2, 9, and 16.

Debby Montone, RN, CDP, CDSGF will explain signal symptoms, effective resource planning, describe components of a care team and strategies for collaboration among team individuals.

In addition to her standing as a registered nurse, Debby Montone is certified as a community educator and a Support Group Facilitator for people with dementia.

“I have worked with the Alzheimer’s population for many years in assisted living, in dedicated units and in a dementia daycare setting,” she said. “I developed my love for this population because of several family members including a special cousin who had Down’s syndrome and Alzheimer’s later in life.”

Registration at www.theoceancountylibrary.org/events is required to attend this free virtual program, presented in partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association Greater New Jersey Chapter. Registrants will receive links to the Zoom presentation by email.
