The Alzheimer’s Association, Greater Illinois Chapter, is hosting an educational program, “Know the Ten Signs: Early Detection Matters,” at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 28, at Waterford Estates, 17400 S. Kedzie in Hazel Crest.
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, this program will provide the facts about Alzheimer’s.
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. A question and answer period will follow.
This program is free. Registrations are being accepted at 815-744-0804 or online at www.alz.org/illinois.
