Cobble Hill Health Center, at 380 Henry St. has partnered with the Alzheimer’s Association, New York City Chapter to present an evening with Alex Witchel, staff writer for The New York Times Magazine and author of “The Spare Wife.” The event, titled “All Gone: A Memoir of My Mother’s Dementia” is geared toward those caring for a loved one suffering from dementia. The evening will provide a thoughtful and informative look at the realities of caring for someone with dementia from the perspective of someone who has actually gone through it.
“All Gone: A Memoir of My Mother’s Dementia” will take place Wednesday, November 28, 2012 at 7 p.m. at Cobble Hill Health Center, 380 Henry Street Brooklyn and refreshments will be served.
“We are pleased to welcome Alex Witchel to Cobble Hill to help those who are caring for a loved one with dementia,” said Tony Lewis, CEO at Cobble Hill Health Center. “It is so much easier to relate to someone who has gone through exactly what you are going through and we know that Alex will provide information and perspective that will resonate with those who are struggling with this. It is our mission to provide a support system to those who are caring for loved ones with dementia and this event helps us to reach out to those that need the help.”
Space for this event is limited. To make a reservation, please call 718-431-0100 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
