Esther Corcoran is returning on October 13, 20, and 27, from 10:00 a.m. to noon, to present a three-part series on Living with Alzheimer’s for middle-stage caregivers and families. We will meet in First Church’s Morgan House Drawing Room.
In the middle stage of Alzheimer’s disease, those who were care partners now become hands-on caregivers. Come and hear caregivers and professionals discuss helpful strategies to provide safe, effective and comfortable care in the middle stage of this disease. This is being sponsored by the Alzheimer’s Association and Urban Alliance. To learn more, or to register, please call Caring Ministries, at 860.529.1575 x210.

Esther Corcoran holds an MS in Counseling from Central Connecticut State University and a BS in Industrial and Labor Relations from Cornell University. Professionally, she has spent her career educating others in the fields of higher education, financial issues, and career services.
She was unexpectedly thrust into the world of Alzheimer’s when her then 57-year-old husband, Mark, was diagnosed with atypical early onset of the disease. They found themselves facing many hurdles navigating the world of Alzheimer’s, compounded by age and work status. Esther joined the Alzheimer’s Association as Program Director to honor her husband and their joint commitment to fight this debilitating disease, and she will share her experiences and insights in these sessions.
