The class will cover an understanding of the difference between age-related memory loss and Alzheimer’s, and what to do if you or someone else shows signs of Alzheimer’s.

A video will be shown of real people living with the early stages of dementia and their families.

Topics include the 10 warning signs, an overview of Alzheimer’s, risk factors and the keys to getting a diagnosis. The benefits of early detection, planning for the future and clinical trials will also be addressed.

The class is free, but registration is required. Call 1-800-272-3900.
