Summer Book Series with HFC and AlzAuthors Launches June 8th

AlzAuthors Hosts Summer Book Series with HFC

AlzAuthors is once again working with HFC to present a Summer Book Series for Alzheimer’s and dementia families and caregivers. This program is open to anyone interested in learning about these conditions. There is no cost. All participants must pre-register to reserve their seat.

Each month one of our authors will meet with readers and caregivers online to discuss their book. The authors will talk about their own dementia journeys and why they chose to write about them. They’ll be available to answer questions. This is a wonderful way to learn more about dementia and caregiving.

There is no need to read the book prior to the discussion, although this may be beneficial.

Daniel Potts, MD, author of A Pocket Guide for the Alzheimer's Caregiversf Join our discussion with Daniel Potts, MD, FAAN,  author of A Pocket Guide for the Alzheimer’s Caregiver, as well as several volumes of poetry.  “As strange as it may seem, caregiving skills were not taught in medical school. Thorough knowledge of the pathology and clinical manifestations of Alzheimer’s was not helping in the day-to-day challenges being faced mainly by my mother, Dad’s primary caregiver. I felt I didn’t know enough to help.”
