HopeHealth will hold a panel presentation, “Living in the Moment: Looking at Alzheimer’s in a New Light,” at Bourne High School on Thursday, September 11, at 11:45 AM
HopeHeath, formerly Hospice and Palliative Care of Cape Cod, is offering this presentation, which supports the Bourne community book read of “Still Alice,” a novel by author Lisa Genova on the New York Times Bestseller list about living with Alzheimer’s.

Gail Dooley Zemaitis, Bourne High School librarian and organizer of the community book read, has invited panelists for the September 11 presentation with a range of knowledge and connection to Alzheimer’s, including
Suzanne Faith, clinical director for Hope Dementia and Alzheimer’s Services, Debora Oliviere Llanes of Bourne Senior Center’s adult day program, and Patricia Cox, a Bourne High School staff member who cared for her mother with dementia.
