Memory loss will be topic at Kent church

Published:

The Unitarian Universalist Church of Kent will host a discussion of memory loss, an introduction to how different kinds of dementia affect the brain, and how people can support and care for people who have memory loss.

The workshop will be presented by the Rev. Katie Norris and sponsored by the congregation's Care Team. It will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday in Fessenden Hall at the church, 228 Gougler Ave., Kent.

Norris is a caregiver for her mother, who was diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia seven years ago. Through this experience and her work as the executive director of the Carolyn L. Farrell Foundation for Brain Health (farrellfoundation.com), Norris has been helping to raise awareness about dementia and help communities and families communicate and care for their loved ones with memory loss. Those attending will engage in discussion, discover local resources, and even try a few dementia-

friendly activities.

A light lunch will be offered. Reservations should be made by calling the church office today at 330-673-4247 or emailing uukent@sbcglobal.net.
