Program set on Alzheimer's warning signs

The warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease are often dismissed as side effects of normal aging. It is important to be aware of what these signs are so that you can take steps to help protect your loved one and your family.

If you or someone you know is experiencing memory loss or behavioral changes, it is time to learn the facts. Early detection gives you a chance to begin drug therapy, enroll in clinical studies and to plan for the future.

Plan to attend a special free program on the 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s Disease, presented by the Alzheimer’s Association, from 12:15 to 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, at Fox Valley Community Center, 1406 Suydam Road, Sandwich.

This presentation will separate myth from reality and address commonly held fears about Alzheimer’s in America. You will hear from people who have the disease and find out how to recognize the signs in yourself and others.

To register for this program, call Fox Valley Older Adult Services at 815-786-9404.
