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.”
