Join the Wright Center for Community Health for a webinar: “Understanding Alzheimer’s and Dementia” on Wednesday April 14, 2021 from 9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.

In the United States alone, more than 5 million individuals are living with Alzheimer’s and 16 million are serving as their unpaid caregivers. The disease is a global crisis that impacts numerous families right here in our community. However, no one has to face this disease alone or without information.

The Alzheimer’s Association® has created an education program covering the basics of Alzheimer’s and dementia to provide a general overview for people who are facing a diagnosis as well as those who wish to be informed.

The free one-hour Understanding Alzheimer’s and Dementia program:

● Explores the relationship between Alzheimer’s disease and dementia

● Examines what happens in a brain affected by Alzheimer’s

● Details the risk factors for and three general stages of the disease

● Identifies FDA-approved treatments available to treat some symptoms

● Looks ahead to what’s on the horizon for Alzheimer’s research

● Offers helpful Alzheimer’s Association resources
