Frewsburg Rest Home Offers Training on Aging Related Topics for Their Staff and Community


FREWSBURG – If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with either Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease or you would like to know more about either or both illnesses, mark your calendar with these dates and times – “Understanding Alzheimers,” November 14, 2012 and “Understanding Parkinson’s Disease” December 12, 2012. Seminars will be presented at the Frewsburg Rest Home in the second floor recreation room; they are one hour in length and include a 2:00 pm afternoon session and a 7:00 pm evening session.

The free, one-hour seminars are being provided through a special grant obtained by the Erie 2 Chautauqua-Cattaraugus BOCES. Both topics are guaranteed to be of interest to personal and professional care givers. Both seminars are designed to provide guidelines for dealing with those who have the disease and highlight easily used techniques to manage behavior and improve the quality of live for those afflicted.

Seats are limited at the 2:00 pm sessions as this is a mandatory inservice for Frewsburg Rest Home staff. Refreshments will be available at both sessions and the program will start on time. Participants from the community are encouraged to use the visitor’s parking lot on the right-hand side facing the building and the main entrance at the back of the lot. Questions regarding the seminar or to reserve your seat for the seminars can be directed to Dennis Bechmann, Frewsburg Rest Home Administrator, at 569-3095 or
