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 email@example.com to learn more or register (not required).
