We had an informative and fun morning at our Alzheimer’s Awareness event which was held on Wednesday, Nov. 16 in Roxboro at the Person County Office Building Auditorium with more than 40 people in attendance at this event. 

November is Alzheimer’s Awareness month and Alzheimer’s has become a growing concern and reality for many of our aging citizens and their families. Attendees were given the opportunity to visit with vendors who work with older adults on concerns about their health, their brain health, fall prevention, insurance needs, and social issues. Thanks to the availability of the Person County Auditorium, we were able to have 10 vendors set up around the room providing information, demonstrations, and so much more. There were then two workshop sessions which was be followed by the awarding of door prizes, which were donated by our vendor organizations.
