Do you or a loved one suffer from cognitive impairment due to dementia?

A free program called “Dementia Therapies” will be presented by CGH Rehab Services therapists at 12 noon on Wednesday, June 7, at 2600 N. Locust St., Sterling. Specialists Lyndi LeMay, MS, CCC-SLP, Speech Pathologist; Allie Yemm Repass, PT, DPT, NCS, Physical Therapist; and Brianne Hamstra, OTR/L, CLT, Occupational Therapist, will discuss the benefits of speech, physical and occupational therapies for those individuals having memory and motor skill deficits resulting from dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease.

The presentation is sponsored by the CGH Health Foundation as part of a multi-year focus on increasing awareness of dementia and on providing services/resources for those impacted by dementia.

“Our expert team will share clinical strategies and live demonstrations on how to maximize functional performance to maintain the individual’s highest quality of life, all while focusing on their continued engagement as their disease progresses,” said Beth Sterk, new CGH Dementia Navigator.
