The Alzheimer’s Association Rochester & Finger Lakes Region has increased its outreach and services in Orleans County this year.

“We’re really trying to connect to Orleans County,” said Ashley Eagan, program manager for the Alzheimer’s Association Rochester & Finger Lakes. “We have resources available. We just need individuals to take advantage of them.”

Eagan addressed the Albion Rotary Club last Thursday. She said the population in Western New York and the Finger Lakes is aging. The Alzheimer’s Association has services for caregivers and people battling the disease.

The Alzheimer’s Association has two community events scheduled for Wednesday in Albion.

There will be representatives from the Alzheimer’s Association for social activities at the Albion Free Methodist Church from 11 a.m. to noon. The church is located at 25 S. Platt St.

The association will lead a discussion, “Effective Communication Strategies,” at Hoag Library from 6 to 7 p.m.. The library is located at 134 South Main St.

The association also has programs each month at Lee-Whedon Memorial Library in Medina, the Concordia Lutheran Church in Kendall, and the Orleans County YMCA in Medina.

For more information or to register for a program, call 585.760.5400 or toll free at 800.272.3900. More information on Alzheimer’s is available at www.alz.org/rochesterny.
