Alzheimer’s Association to host free session on warning signs of Alzheimer’s Disease

RUSHVILLE — “Know the 10 Signs,” a free workshop on detecting the warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease, will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 12:39 p.m. Feb. 21, at the Area 9 Agency on Aging in Richmond. The Area 9 Agency on Aging is located at 520 S. 9th Street. The session, which is free to the public, requires registration by contacting the Alzheimer’s Association at 800-272-3900.

“Know the 10 Signs” is a program developed by the Alzheimer’s Association designed to help people understand the warning signs of dementia. The program also has interactive video clips of people living with Alzheimer’s.

Today, more than five million Americans have Alzheimer’s disease, including 120,000 Hoosiers.  Alzheimer’s disease is the nation’s sixth leading cause of death.  The direct and indirect costs of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias amount to more than $200 billion annually.

The Alzheimer’s Association is the world leader in Alzheimer’s research and support. Having awarded more than $300 million to more than 2,100 scientists, the Alzheimer’s Association is the largest private funder of Alzheimer’s research. The Association’s vision is a world without Alzheimer’s disease. For more information, please visit www.alz.org/indiana.
