Alzheimer’s Association offering 2-part education series in Orleans about dementia
Press Release, Western New York Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association
ALBION/LYNDONVILLE — The Western New York Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association will offer a two-part education series on recognizing and understanding Alzheimer’s disease and dementia on March 22 and 23 from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
The March 22 session will cover “Understanding Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia” and will be held at Hoag Library, 134 S. Main St., Albion. The March 23 session will help participants “Know the 10 Warning Signs” and will be held at Yates Library, 15 N. Main St., Lyndonville. Participants can attend either or both sessions.
“The sessions will help educate participants about the differences between Alzheimer’s and normal aging, and what to do if you suspect dementia in yourself or a loved one,” says Andrea Koch, director of education and training for the WNY Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association. “With new treatments available for early-stage Alzheimer’s, it is more important than ever to be evaluated by a health care professional if Alzheimer’s is suspected.”
Anyone wishing to attend can register for either event by calling 800.272.3900. Or, they can register online for the March 22 session (click here for the link) or the March 23 session (click here).
This free series is supported in part by a grant from the New York State Department of Health.
