Alzheimer's Association launches new Know the 10 Signs: Early Detection Matters education campaign
The Alzheimer’s Association has kicked off its Know the 10 Signs: Early Detection Matters campaign, a multi-faceted national education effort to increase awareness of the 10 warning signs of Alzheimer's and the benefits of early detection and early diagnosis. Early detection, diagnosis and intervention are vital because they provide individuals the best opportunities for treatment, support and planning for their future.
Updated warning signs help with early detection
As part of its public education effort, the Alzheimer's Association has worked with a wide range group of experts to update its 10 warning signs of Alzheimer's to make them more current and user-friendly. The comprehensive review process included feedback from health professionals, clinicians, scientists and people with dementia.
