SAGE and Alzheimer’s Association in N.C. partner for LGBT programs

Alzheimer’s disease is not a normal part of aging. This July, join the Alzheimer’s Association and SAGE Wilmington of the Cape Fear Coast for a series of Virtual Education Programs to learn about the impact of Alzheimer’s, warning signs to look for in yourself or a loved one, ways to keep the body & brain healthy, and how to respond to dementia-related behaviors.

SAGE (Service and Advocacy for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Elders) is the country’s largest and oldest organization dedicated to improving the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) older people. Founded in 1978 and headquartered in New York City, SAGE is a national organization that offers supportive services and consumer resources to LGBT older people and their caregivers. 

SAGE Wilmington’s mission is to bring our LGBTQIA elders together by organizing social gatherings and networking with existing service/ advocacy programs to build support and community for each other. SAGE Wilmington is a program of the Frank Harr Foundation.

Register for one of the Alzheimer’s Association’s free virtual education programs about Alzheimer’s and other dementias, as well as resources to help you navigate this journey. Join from the comfort and safety of your home.
