Understanding Alzheimer's and Dementia
Date: June 24, 2020
Time: 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

In the United States alone, more than 5 million individuals are living with Alzheimer’s and 16 million are serving as their unpaid caregivers. The disease is a global crisis that impacts numerous families right here in our community. However, no one has to face this disease alone or without information.

 

The Alzheimer’s Association® has created an education program covering the basics of Alzheimer’s and dementia to provide a general overview for people who are facing a diagnosis as well as those who wish to be informed.

 

The free Understanding Alzheimer’s and Dementia workshop:

  • Explores the relationship between Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
  • Examines what happens in a brain affected by Alzheimer’s.
  • Details the risk factors for and three general stages of the disease.
  • Identifies FDA-approved treatments available to treat some symptoms.
  • Looks ahead to what’s on the horizon for Alzheimer’s research.
  • Offers helpful Alzheimer’s Association resources.

 

The program will be held at the Antigo Public Library (617 Clermont Street) on Wednesday, June 24, 2020 from 6:00-7:30pm.  Call (715) 352-4091 or email Julie St. Pierre at jstpierre@alz.org to learn more or register (not required).
