Do you know the warning signs of Alzheimer’s? The warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease are often dismissed as side effects of normal aging. If you or someone you know is experiencing memory loss or behavioral changes, perhaps it’s time to learn the facts. Early detection can provide the opportunity to explore treatments that may provide some relief of symptoms and help maintain a level of independence longer. Early detection also allows more time to plan for the future and for taking part in decisions about care, living options, financial and legal matters, as well as building the right care team and social support network. You are cordially invited to attend an interactive workshop, where you will learn about the ten warning signs of Alzheimer’s. The workshop will help to separate myth from reality and address commonly-held fears about Alzheimer’s in America.
