Multnomah County will host a six-session workshop in Gresham to help families build skills to care for loved ones with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia.

The free class will help family caregivers better understand dementia and the changes it can cause in loved ones. It also will provide coping skills for caregivers and tips on how to provide the best care.

Classes will take place on Mondays from 10 a.m. to noon from Sept. 18 to Oct. 23 at Mt. Hood Adult Day Center, 376 NE 219th Ave., in Gresham.

Free care for loved ones is available on site while classes are in session and can be arranged by calling Cathy Fallon-Weeg at 503.512.7373 by Sept. 14.

To register for the 6-week workshop, or for more information about the class, call Multnomah County Family Caregiver Support Program Coordinator Loriann McNeill at 503.988.8210.
