Many Americans dismiss the warning signs of Alzheimer's, believing that the symptoms are a normal part of aging. This is of even greater concern for African-Americans, who are two times more likely to develop Alzheimer's disease than whites but less likely to have a diagnosis, resulting in less time for treatment and planning.

All caregivers are welcome to this Saturday morning seminar, regardless of background or ethnicity. Lunch and a light breakfast will be served and participants will have the opportunity to meet with representatives of organizations serving caregiver needs. There is no charge to attend, but reservations are required. Call 800-272-3900 for more information or to make a reservation.

Social workers may receive three hours of continuing education free of charge.
