UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — As people get older, some changes in memory, thinking and behavior are normal. But sometimes, these changes might be a sign of something more serious, such as Alzheimer’s disease.
That’s why Penn State Extension teamed up with the Alzheimer’s Association to hold the “10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s” webinar. Instructors will describe what’s typical with aging and what could be a red flag for Alzheimer’s.
There are two upcoming webinars that will take place from noon to 1 p.m., December 6, 2023, and December 11, 2023. Each of these webinars will cover the same topics.
Organizers said it’s not just for experts — it’s for anyone who wants to learn about Alzheimer’s and dementia warning signs or has noticed changes in themselves or loved ones.
In these sessions, participants can discover:
— What’s normal when it comes to memory, thinking and behavior as people age.
— Common warning signs of Alzheimer’s or dementia.
— Tips on how to talk to someone about memory concerns.
— Why early detection is important and the benefits of a diagnosis.
— What tests and assessments are part of the diagnostic process.
Participants also can learn about helpful resources from the Alzheimer’s Association.
This webinar is free, but attendees must register by [registration deadline] to get the access link. Those who register also will receive a link to watch the recording of the program.
