Know the 10 signs: Early detection matters
5/29/2014, 6 a.m.
The Alzheimer’s Association, Greater Illinois Chapter’s educational program Know the Ten Signs:
Early Detection Matters will take place at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, June 17 at Manhattan-Elwood Library, 240 Whitson Street in Manhattan, IL. 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, it’s time to learn the facts. 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 in America.
Program specialist Hadi will present and take questions following the program.
The end of Alzheimer’s disease starts here. To register for this program offered at no cost, call 815-478-3987 or register online at www.alz.org/illinois.
