The Rancho Santa Fe Library Guild and the Alzheimer’s Association announced their partnership in September and are proud to continue their relationship to raise awareness about Alzheimer’s to the local community. The partnership took root when the Alzheimer’s Association was brainstorming ways to reach individuals and families living with Alzheimer’s, as well as the loved ones that help care for them. By partnering with the library guild, the association was able to extend their reach to an expanded network of people in need of information and support. The monthly presentations cover everything from the latest in Alzheimer’s research to prevention, early detection, and tips on how to be an effective communicator with a loved one struggling with memory loss. The next class, entitled Maximizing Your Brain Health, will take place on Jan. 27 at the Rancho Santa Fe Library from 11:30 to 1:30 p.m. Classes are free and lunch is provided. You can RSVP for the classes by calling 800-272-3900 or by visiting www.alz.org/sandiego.
