Early Detection Matters


Overview:
The warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease are often dismissed as side effects of normal aging. The goal of this program is to provide compelling information about Alzheimer’s disease, and moving testimony from families living with the disease, to encourage early detection, early diagnosis and early intervention.  The workshop will provide the general public with a greater understanding  of the different between age-related memory loss and dementia and what to do if they have signs of Alzheimer’s disease.

Audience: 
Anyone who would like to know more about Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.   

Topics covered will include:
• Participants will be able to identify the 10 warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease and what to do next if they are experiencing signs of Alzheimer’s.
• Participants will understand what is involved in getting a diagnosis.
• Participants will be able to identify the risks of Alzheimer’s, including connections to other conditions
• Participants will understand the benefits of early detection.

Presentation time:
