VERO BEACH — The Alzheimer & Parkinson Association will host a Book Signing Tea, 2 to 4 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 19, at the Oak Harbor Clubhouse. Dr. Rosemary Laird, co-author of Take Your Oxygen First, a wonderful resource for caregivers, will be the guest speaker.
Tickets are $25 per person, which includes a signed copy of the book and light refreshments, typical of an afternoon tea party. Sandy Rolf and Chris Loftus are chairing the event and Dr. Laird will donate her share of the proceeds to benefit the local Alzheimer Chapter.
Richard D. Della Penna, M.D., Director, Kaiser Permanente Aging Network and National Alzheimer’s Association Board Member writes of Dr. Laird’s book:
“Take Your Oxygen First is an exceptionally useful guide for caregivers and families of people with Alzheimer’s disease and other types of memory loss. It is well written and is a balanced source of actionable advice. It is chock full of information and tips for caregivers. It is sensitive but not sentimental; realistic but not pessimistic; informative but not overwhelming.
Caregivers of people with memory loss will refer to it again and again as they live with the shifting challenges of caring for their loved ones and themselves”
Reservations are required. Call (772)563-0505.
