    Understanding Alzheimer’s and Dementia

    November 12, 2021@2:00 pm-3:00 pm

    In the United States alone, more than 6 million individuals are living with Alzheimer’s and 11 million are serving as their unpaid caregivers, often family and friends. The disease is a global crisis that impacts families right here in our community. However, no one should have 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.
    The free one-hour Understanding Alzheimer’s and Dementia program:
    ● Explores the relationship between Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
    ● Examines what happens in a brain affected by Alzheimer’s.
    ● Details the risk factors for Alzheimer’s
    ● Discusses three general stages of the disease.
    ● Identifies FDA-approved treatments available to treat some symptoms.
    ● Looks ahead to what’s on the horizon for Alzheimer’s research.
    ● Offers helpful Alzheimer’s Association resources.

    The program is designed to run approximately 1 hour including Q&A.
