San Luis Obispo County families can attend a free Alzheimer’s care training workshop, offered in recognition of World Alzheimer’s Month, on Thursday from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Home Instead Senior Care Training Center, 180 N. Ninth St. in Grover Beach.

The CARE program incorporates a hands-on approach to help families deal with the difficult behavioral changes that often are associated with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias.

Program experts will teach caregivers how to manage behaviors, encourage engagement and care for themselves while caring for a person with dementia. To make a reservation, call 473-5781 or email talcantara345@gmail.com.
