JANESVILLE -- The Aging & Disability Resource Center will host a free Rock County Caregiver Boot Camp on Saturday, Oct. 13, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Job Center, 1900 Center Ave.

Cori Marsh, dementia care specialist at the Aging & Disability Center, and Bonnie Nuttkinson, program and advocacy manager of the South Central Wisconsin Chapter-Alzheimer's Association, will provide education and support for families coping with memory loss of a loved one.

The Boot Camp will cover topics such as what memory loss, dementia, and Alzheimer's are and what the diagnosis might mean, what you might expect, planning for the future, local resources, and communication tips when dealing with difficult subjects such as driving.

A new project for families dealing with dementia called the "Purple Tube Project" will be unveiled.
