In this class, attendees will gain an understanding of the difference between age-related memory loss and Alzheimer’s and what to do if they or someone they know has signs of the disease. Video footage of real people who are living with the early stages of dementia and their families will be shown addressing fears and myths associated with Alzheimer’s disease. The workshop will cover the following topics:
The 10 warning signs
Overview of Alzheimer's disease
What is involved in getting a diagnosis
Benefits of early detection, including accessing available treatment, planning for the future and participating in clinical trials are also addressed.
Note: In the event there are not enough people registered, the program will be cancelled.
