Cherokee County residents can take part in a virtual community forum on Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias hosted by the Alzheimer's Association Georgia Chapter from 6 to 7:30 p.m. May 11.

The forum will give residents of all ages an opportunity to ask questions about the disease, share their personal experiences, learn about available resources, and discover volunteer opportunities to support families affected by the disease. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the event will be held virtually.

“We understand the importance of Alzheimer’s disease care and support programs and services in Cherokee County,” said LaRay Ramey, program director, Alzheimer’s Association, Georgia chapter. “Community Forums are hosted by the Alzheimer’s Association in communities across the country, where families are invited to come together with Association staff and volunteers to mobilize our community in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease.”

Community forums hosted by the Alzheimer’s Association bring together families affected by the disease with staff and volunteers to open conversation to bolster resources, programs and services to support families in their communities.
