The Alzheimer’s Services of Cape Cod and Islands will present a program on Saturday, April 26, designed to help caregivers and family members better understand and deal with Alzheimer’s Disease.

The organization will present the program from 1 to 2:30 p.m. at the Vineyard Haven Public Library, Main street, Vineyard Haven.

An educational conference (eligible for continuing education units) for professionals will be held from 9 a.m. to noon.

The Alzheimer’s organization began when a group of family caregivers and health care professionals came together for the purpose of sharing insights, ideas and information and providing support that eventually would help other families in the community better cope with the effects of this debilitating and devastating disease.

Admission is free. More information is available by calling Betty Burton at 508-696-4211, extension 16, or the Alzheimer’s organization at 508-775-5656 or
