An excellent Alzheimer Cafe, last Saturday.
Pharmacists Carol and Beth Risto, gave a very useful overview of drug therapies open to dementia patients as well as a description of the disease and how it affects those afflicted with it.
The more than 60 people present were delighted by the Kingston choir, “Sentimental Journey.” Their name aptly describes their choice of music: sentimental music from the 50’s and 60’s. At the end of their set, they led a singalong. They stood amid the people present and encouraged everyone to sing lustily. And they did!
To top off this wonderful event, plates of goodies stood at the centre of the table and Youths served coffee and tea.
Be sure to mark, March the 25th in your calendar for the Next Alzheimer Cafe.
