ROCHESTER, NY–The Village at Mill Landing will offer a six-week educational program this month for people who care for older adults with dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, and other long-term health conditions. The series of classes will provide caregivers with the skills and confidence to better care for their loved ones and themselves.
