Lyme Disease Awareness

May is Lyme Disease Awareness month, and our region is facing a growing public health threat from tiny ticks that may cause Lyme Disease. Research conducted by Paul Smiths College, in conjunction with the New York State Department of Health, has shown an increase in ticks carrying the bacteria that causes Lyme.

While we do not want to discourage people from enjoying the outdoors, we do want you to stay safe. Senator Betty Little’s office has provided brochures that should arrive in our library soon. And the New York State Department of Health has a video on how to safely remove a tick.

Alzheimer’s Association workshop on Communication

 

Join us on Tuesday, April 25th for: Effective Communication Strategies: a workshop by the Alzheimer’s Association. 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 us 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. To register for this local program, contact Tonya Garmley at 518-867-4000 ext. 200. Meet in our Community Room at 11:00 AM.
