  Alzheimer’s is not normal aging; it’s a disease of the brain that causes problems with memory, thinking and behavior. Join us to learn about: The impact of Alzheimer’s, the difference between Alzheimer’s and dementia, Alzheimer’s disease stages and risk factors, current research, treatments available to address some symptoms and Alzheimer’s Association resources.

 

10 Warning Signs:

Early diagnosis gives people with Alzheimer’s disease the chance to make key decisions about treatment, care and planning and the power to make choices about their own health and future. This program increases awareness of the benefits of early Alzheimer’s detection, and provides information about memory loss and normal aging, Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. Also learn about the risk factors,10 warning signs, the diagnostic process and resources to help.
