Alzheimer’s is focus of November events

Expressions at Enumclaw is offering two November events to draw awareness toward Alzheimer’s disease and related illnesses.

Candles of Care, a commemorative candle lighting ceremony to honor and remember Americans who have been or will be affected by Alzheimer’s disease or a related illness, begins at 6:30 p.m. Sunday at the Enumclaw facility, 2454 Cole St. This free program is open to the community.

Tuesday, Expressions of Enumclaw will host National Memory Screening Days to stress the importance of proper detection and treatment to help raise awareness of Alzheimer’s disease and about memory problems.

Free 5- to 10-minute confidential memory screenings will be offered between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Each screening consists of a series of simple questions and tasks administered by a qualified healthcare professional.

Call 360-825-4565 to schedule an appointment.
