Recognizing the Signs of Alzheimer's Disease

from Greater Stonegate Village

Registration required

Is it Normal Aging or Alzheimer's Disease?
In this session, we will discuss the warning signs of Alzheimer's disease, different types of dementia, and when you should be concerned. We'll also discuss best practices for communicating with someone who is experiencing cognitive decline. Join Greater Stonegate Village (GSV) and Marla Lahat for this informative program via Zoom.

Speaker bio:
Marla Lahat is a GSV member and our Program Chair. Marla is a licensed clinical social worker who has served as Executive Director of Home Care Partners, a non-profit, supportive home care agency, since 1999. The agency provides home care aide services to older persons and support for their family caregivers throughout the D.C. metropolitan area. It also administers the Safe at Home program, a nationally recognized program that enables older persons to remain safely in their homes by providing home modifications.

Having had a great deal of contact with the Villages in D.C., Marla was very familiar with the concept and the positive impact that Villages can have in a community. She was thrilled to see the Greater Stonegate Village develop and began volunteering immediately. Marla has a Master’s degree in Social Work from Temple University and a Bachelor’s in Science from Cornell University. She has been a resident of the Greater Stonegate community since 1988 and currently lives in her Stonegate home with her husband and dog, Chloe. Her three sons grew up in Stonegate, attending Stonegate Elementary and the local middle and high schools and spending summers at the Stonegate Swim Club. She is an avid audio book listener, loves walking outdoors, traveling, theater, spending time with family and friends, and of course, volunteering with GSV!
