Alzheimer's Speaker at Senior Center, Warsaw, MO

Linda Fisher, Sedalia, MO, author and speaker, will present a one-hour program on Caregiver Emotions, 10:00 a.m., June 12, at the Senior Center at Harbor Village, Warsaw. The presentation focuses on Alzheimer’s caregivers, but caregivers for other diseases are encouraged to attend.

“Being a caregiver for a loved one is on-the-job training for a job you never wanted,” Fisher said. “Caregiving is an emotional rollercoaster. Before you tackle caregiving, it is essential to  take care of your own emotional wellbeing.”

Fisher became an Alzheimer’s Association volunteer when her husband developed dementia at forty-nine years old. She is an award-winning author and blogger who has published six books of essays from her early-onset Alzheimer’s blog at She is an Alzheimer’s advocate and serves on the Alzheimer’s Association Greater Missouri Chapter Board of Directors.

The presentation is free and open to the public. Reservations are not required, but RSVP’s are appreciated. For more information contact Charlene, Senior Center, at 660-438-3569.
