[January 22, 2013]  Everyone knows there are early warning signs for heart disease and stroke, and most are aware of what those signs can be. But do you know that there are also early warning signs for Alzheimer's?

Wednesday afternoon, Castle Manor and the Greater Illinois Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association will offer a one-hour review of what to look for in loved ones who may be in the early stages of this debilitating disease.

The program will focus on the 10 warning signs of serious memory loss. It includes a basic overview of Alzheimer's disease and covers risk factors, diagnosis and the benefits of early detection.

Through the use of video footage, guests at the meeting will see people living with memory loss and how they address the fears and myths associated with dementia. Guests will also hear from family members about how they are affected.

Participation in this meeting is free, but registration is required. To register to attend, call 217-726-5184 or visit www.alz.org/illinois
