Understanding Alzheimer's and Dementia 10:00 a.m.

Thursday, November 7, 2019

In the United States alone, more than 5 million individuals are living with Alzheimer’s and 16 million are serving as their unpaid caregivers. The disease is a global crisis that impacts numerous families right here in our community. However, no one has to face this disease alone or without information.

The Alzheimer’s Association® has created an education program covering the basics of Alzheimer’s and dementia to provide a general overview for people who are facing a diagnosis as well as those who wish to be informed.

At this free program we will:
  • Explore the relationship between Alzheimer’s disease and dementia
  • Examine what happens in a brain affected by Alzheimer’s
  • Discuss risk factors and three general stages of the disease
  • Identify FDA-approved treatments available
  • Look ahead to what’s on the horizon for Alzheimer’s research.
