Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor will be host next month to a series of classes called the “Just Ask! Series.”

The first installment, “Starting the Tough Conversations,” will be at 6 p.m. Nov. 8 in Presbyterian Manor’s chapel at 1711 N. Fourth St.

“When someone you love has Alzheimer’s disease, it can be difficult to start those tough conversations about driving, finances and medical decisions,” according to a release from the manor.

This class will share tips for having difficult conversation with family members about common issues experienced in the early stages of Alzheimer’s and dementia. Those problems can include making legal and financial plans.

“Just Ask!” is a free, ongoing, lifelong learning program that features information from experts nationwide.

Loved ones who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or any other form of dementia may benefit from placement in a memory care facility.

These facilities are designed to support the needs of individuals facing memory loss.

As an added benefit, they also provide help to transition from home living to a senior living community.

Presbyterian Manor opened its memory care unit in 2013.
