JOHNSTOWN – HealthLink Littauer, the community health and wellness service of Nathan Littauer Hospital and Nursing Home, announces a program on “Alzheimer’s: The Long Goodbye” will be held on Thursday from 2 to 3:30 p.m. at the wellness center, 213 Harrison St. Ext.

“Family members and friends who care for someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia experience a different kind of loss,” Brigitta Giulianelli, program manager for the Alzheimer’s Association of Northeastern New York, said in a news release. “The grief process occurs in steps as your loved one suffers loss of abilities and awareness.
