Alzheimer's Program

Margaret Reaney Memorial Library in cooperation with the Northeastern New York Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association will present the program, Know the 10 Signs: Early Detection Matters, on Friday, July 29 at 10 AM. 
            The warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease are often dismissed as inevitable parts of normal aging.  If you or someone you know is experiencing memory loss or behavioral changes, it’s time to learn the facts. 
            Early detection is the key to improving quality of life for anyone affected by memory impairment.  This interactive workshop will discuss the 10 warning signs; separating myth from reality and address commonly-held fears about Alzheimer’s and dementia. 
            Recently, University of Tennessee women’s basketball coach, Pat Summitt, passed away following a five year battle with dementia.  Ms. Summitt was 64 at the time of her death. 
            For planning purposes, kindly call the Reaney Library at 518-568-7822 if you hope to attend. 
            If enough interest is expressed, it is possible a caregivers support group will be formed for ongoing discussion.
