What is the difference between typical age-related memory changes and Alzheimer's disease? How do I know if I need to be concerned about myself or a loved one? What steps should I take if I think there might be a problem? This class will answer these questions and more. We will discuss the 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer's, why early detection is important, and how Alzheimer's is diagnosed. We will also touch briefly on risk factors for Alzheimer’s and related dementias as well as the role of genetics in Alzheimer’s disease.

Please note: this presentation is appropriate for the person with mild memory loss but not for the person with moderate or advanced memory loss.
