[September 01, 2016]
The Alzheimer’s Association, Greater
Illinois Chapter’s educational program Know the Ten Signs: Early
Detection Matters will take place at Rochester Public Library on
September 1st at 1 Community Drive in Rochester.
The warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease are often dismissed as side
effects of normal aging. If individuals believe they or someone they
know is experiencing memory loss or behavioral changes, it’s time to
learn the facts. Early detection allows for a chance to begin drug
therapy, enroll in clinical studies and plan for the future.
Attendees will learn the 10 warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease,
hear from people who have the disease and find out how to recognize
the signs. Presenters will also separate myth from reality and
address commonly-held fears about Alzheimer’s in America.
Program specialist Sara McGady will present and take questions
following the program.
The end of Alzheimer’s disease starts here. To register for this
program offered at no cost, call 217-726-5184 or register online at
This program was made possible in part by a grant from the Community
Foundation for the Land of Lincoln King's Daughter's Organization
Fund as well as other generous donors.
