Written by Healthy Living News. Posted in Our Community

The Alzheimer’s Association Northwest Ohio Chapter will hold an educational program on The 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s for interested community members. The hour-long event will be held Monday, March 16 at 10:00 a.m. at the Sylvania Senior Center, 7140 W. Sylvania Ave.

The Alzheimer’s Association® has created an education program that explores the most common warning signs of Alzheimer’s to help individuals stay informed about what is normal aging and what is not. The free one-hour program:

  • Describes typical age-related memory, thinking, or behavioral changes
  • Helps individuals learn how to recognize the common warning signs of Alzheimer’s and dementia
  • Discusses tips for approaching someone about memory concerns
  • Explains the importance of early detection and the benefits of diagnosis
  • Identifies possible tests/assessments for the diagnostic process
  • Offers helpful Alzheimer’s Association resources.

“This program is our most important community program,” says Pam Myers, Program Director of the Chapter. “When you or your loved ones begin to notice changes in these areas, it is important to know what might be a warning sign of Alzheimer’s and how to access help/resources to ensure an accurate diagnosis.''

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. ❦
