Alzheimer’s update slated at Southern Pines

THOMASVILLE — The Alzheimer’s Association, Georgia Chapter, will present an Alzheimer’s Legislative Update at 2 p.m. Thursday at Southern Pines Senior Living Community in Thomasville.

The presentation is in preparation for Alzheimer's Day at the Georgia State Capitol on Thursday, Feb. 13.

“In addition to serving families and residents with Alzheimer’s Disease and other related dementias on our campus here at Southern Pines Senior Living, our team is committed to promoting education and awareness in the state of Georgia among our elected officials to facilitate expanded support for those impacted by this disease,” said Carol Whitney, Southern Pines Senior Living executive director.

  Anyone interested in attending the day at the capitol may register at the training or online at and click register to attend.

 The South Georgia Regional Office is providing transportation from Tifton and has room for more participants if they register by Friday. A van or carpool will be provided, depending on the number of participants attending.

Bonnie Sayles, Alzheimer’s association regional programs and services director, will present the Legislative Update on Alzheimer’s issues from 2 to 4 p.m. at Southern Pines, 423 Covington Ave.

The program is open to the general public for anyone interested in learning about pending legislative issues dealing with Alzheimer’s disease and related elder care.
