Understanding Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia

Monday, February 3, 2020

Come join Penn’s Village for an interesting presentation on the difference between Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.  Learn what the warning signs are and what you and your health professionals can do to provide needed treatment.

He has been a community educator and facilitator for two caregiver support groups of the Alzheimer’s Association for seven years. He will cover the following topics:

  • Detecting Alzheimer’s Disease
  • The benefits of early detection
  • How to address a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Causes and risk factors
  • Stages of the disease and treatment options, including potential future options
