Oklahoma chapter of Alzheimer's Association to Lawton

LAWTON, Okla._The Oklahoma chapter of the Alzheimer's Association is opening its doors in Lawton.

The ribbon was cut Friday afternoon. Organizers and community members celebrated the new office serving Southwest Oklahoma.

The staff will provide resources and support to families and caregivers of those dealing with Alzheimer's disease.

"It's much more about awareness about disease, education about the disease, and then helping the local communities to understand that there is someone there who can connect them to the support that they need," said Alzheimer's Association Oklahoma chapter President Mark Fried.

Reservations are being taken for care consultations beginning the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month, the first being February 11th. 

 

 

 During care consultations trained staff will meet with individual families to empower them throughout the process.
