A virtual statewide series presented by the Alzheimer's Association
Nearly half a million American veterans have Alzheimer’s – and as the population ages, that number is expected to grow. For veterans, prevalence may grow even faster in future years as studies have indicated they are at a higher risk of developing dementia, due to moderate and severe traumatic brain injuries and posttraumatic stress disorder.
For those who receive an Alzheimer’s disease diagnosis, the number of questions that arise can be overwhelming. What does the diagnosis mean? How do I plan for the future? What resources are available to help? As the disease progresses, the need for information and support will grow.
Families of those who have served our nation are invited to join this virtual series of programs that will address questions that arise when caring for an individual living in the early, middle or late stage of the disease. Hear from other caregivers and learn about tips and strategies that can help you at every stage.
