“Memory Sunday” Event to Raise Dementia Awareness Among Faith Communities

The City of Boston, the Executive Office of Elder Affairs, Alzheimer’s Association of MA/NH and other organizations are sponsoring the first “Memory Sunday” event in the Northeast on Sunday, June 10th.

The idea behind Memory Sunday is that every church, on the 2nd Sunday in June each year will openly address the problem of Alzheimer’s disease to increase awareness and promote existing resources.  The City of Boston and other event organizers are inviting people and  representatives of faith communities to attend this year and next year do it in their own places of worship.

See event details and registration information below:

MEMORY SUNDAY

Sunday, June 10th, 2018, 2 p.m. – 4 p.m.

Berea Seventh-Day Adventist Church (108 Seaver Street, Dorchester MA)

Memory Sunday provides information about prevention, treatment, research, and caregiving for Alzheimer’s disease. Its purpose is to draw national and local attention to the impact of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias on communities, to use the power of the pulpit to raise awareness, and to support people living with the disease and their caregivers.

Please join us for a conversation on:

  • Understanding aging and dementia
  • Managing memory
  • Strategies for prevention
  • Tools for your brain health
  • Care for the caregiver

To attend or sign up on behalf of others, please contact Patricia McCormack at (617) 635-3992 | patricia.mccormack@boston.gov, or email bereasdabostonsecretary@gmail.com.
