Understanding Alzheimer’s Disease

While everyone's story is unique, we have all heard or experienced firsthand some of the challenges that dementia or Alzheimer's can have on a family. Whether you have received the diagnosis or are a caregiver, learn what you need to know to live your best life at Understanding Alzheimer's Disease. The Alzheimer's Association of North Texas presents this free workshop.

Alzheimer's is a degenerative brain disease that is the leading cause of dementia. It causes a slow decline in memory, thinking and reasoning skills. Five million people in the United States live with the disease.

The Alzheimer's Association works globally raise awareness, promote advocacy, and to provide care and support for families affected. Their website and live events offer resources and encouragement for people diagnosed with Alzheimer's, as well as their families.

Discover your options At Understanding Alzheimer's Disease. Learn ten signs and symptoms of the disease, as early stages can be hard to diagnose. Then get a glimpse at what life looks like with dementia and what research is being conducted.

Understanding Alzheimer's Disease is Tuesday, October 24, at 5 p.m. at our Southeast Branch. This workshop is free and no registration is required.
