Caregivers, professionals learn about disease at Alzheimer’s University

MORGANTOWN — J.T. Hunter believes life put him where he was meant to be.
Hunter, who is the Family Services coordinator for the Alzheimer’s Association, learned about the disease the hard way — through his grandmother’s diagnosis.
He said he considered her his second mother and best friend. As her disease progressed, he and his mother became her primary caregivers, and the fight against Alzheimer’s became his passion.
The West Virginia Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association has been working around the state to make resources available to those in need.
On July 25, the nonprofit will host the Alzheimer’s & Dementia University for Families and Professionals at WVU Medicine.
