The Alzheimer’s Association, Greater Illinois Chapter’s educational program, Know the Ten Signs: Early Detection Matters, will take place at 7:00 PM on Thursday, April 6, 2017 at Church of Good Sheperd, 5 W. Washington Street in Oswego, IL.
The warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease are often dismissed as side effects of normal aging. If individuals believe they or someone they know is experiencing memory loss or behavioral changes, it’s time to learn the facts. Early detection allows for a chance to begin drug therapy, enroll in clinical studies and plan for the future.
Attendees will learn the 10 warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease, hear from people who have the disease and find out how to recognize the signs. Presenters will also separate myth from reality and address commonly-held fears about Alzheimer’s in America.
Program specialist Mayra Ligeza will present and take questions following the program.
