UPCOMING EVENTS

We’re always cooking up something interesting for members of our greater community. From art exhibitions and open house brunches to our popular Just Ask educational seminars, find out what’s happening this month.

Alzheimer's and other dementias cause memory, thinking, and behavior changes that interfere with daily living. Alzheimer’s, a degenerative brain disease, is the most common form of dementia. However, dementia is not a specific disease, but rather a term that describes a group of symptoms related to memory and cognitive function.

Join Rolla Presbyterian Manor for 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s, a free virtual event, at 3 p.m. March 17 to learn about common warning signs of Alzheimer's and what symptoms to look for in yourself and others, as well as tips to approach someone who is experiencing changes in their memory, the benefit of early detection and diagnosis, and more.

Register online for 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s, at https://www.communityresourcefinder.org/ResourceView/Index?id=2106997&profileDefinitionId=93. When you click the registration link, you will be redirected to the Alzheimer’s Association website to complete the registration process. If this is your first time to RSVP for an Alzheimer’s Association event, the registration link on the Alzheimer’s site will prompt you to register with their site. Once you’ve completed this one-time site registration, you will be able to reserve your spot for this event, and future events, by logging in. Once your registration is processed, you will receive a unique link to the event with instructions for joining the webinar.

The event is one in a series of webinars exploring Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias and some of the most important topics of concern to caregivers and those who are experiencing the disease.

From February to November, we’ll explore a different topic each month through virtual presentations led by the Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Missouri.

The series is part of Rolla Presbyterian Manor’s Just Ask lifelong learning program, featuring topics and speakers of interest to seniors and their adult children. Future topics include effective communication strategies, understanding and responding to dementia-related behaviors and more. Check out a list of future events, by visiting https://www.Rollapresbyterianmanor.org/events-activities.

All artists age 65 and older are invited to participate in the annual Art is Ageless® juried exhibit and competition at Rolla Presbyterian Manor April 26 – 29.

Artists compete in nine categories, including painting, drawing, photography, quilting and sculpture and may be designated as amateur or professional. The complete rules and category listing is found online at www.ArtIsAgeless.org. Artists may choose to enter their works for exhibit only. For the competition, works are to have been completed in the past five years (since January 2016).

Entries of artistic works will be accepted from any area artist who is 65 years of age or older to exhibit and/or compete for an opportunity to be featured in the Art is Ageless calendar in 2022. Works to be entered for judging need to be at Presbyterian Manor by 4 p.m., April 21.  To arrange to drop off, contact Joelle Freeland, at 573-364-7336 or email lfreeland@pmma.org.

The exhibit, which continues the celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Art is Ageless program, is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily April 26 – 29, with a reception recognizing the artists from 6 – 7 p.m. April 29. Both the exhibit and the reception are open to residents only. A virtual exhibit will be posted and the winners will be announced, both on Facebook.

The Art is Ageless® program encourages Rolla Presbyterian Manor residents and other area seniors to express their creativity through its annual competition, as well as art classes, musical and dramatic events, educational opportunities and current events discussions throughout the year.

Communication is more than just talking and listening – it’s also about sending and receiving messages through attitude, tone of voice, facial expressions and body language. As people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias progress in their journey and the ability to use words is lost, families need new ways to connect.

Join Rolla Presbyterian Manor for Effective Communication Strategies, a free virtual event, at 3 p.m. May 19 to explore how communication takes place when someone has Alzheimer’s, learn to decode the verbal and behavioral messages delivered by someone with dementia, and identify strategies to help you connect and communicate at each stage of the disease.
