Alzheimer’s Program to begin April 16th at Tamarac
“While no one can change the outcome of dementia or Alzheimer's, with the right support you can change the journey.”-Tara Reed
Alzheimer's is a type of dementia that causes problems with memory, thinking and behavior. Symptoms usually develop slowly and get worse over time, becoming severe enough to interfere with daily tasks.
Alzheimer's has no current cure, but treatments for symptoms are available and research continues. Although current Alzheimer's treatments cannot stop Alzheimer's from progressing, they can temporarily slow the worsening of dementia symptoms and improve quality of life for those with Alzheimer's and their caregivers. Today, there is a worldwide effort underway to find better ways to treat the disease, delay its onset, and prevent it from developing.
Beginning April 16th and continuing on the third Monday of each month thereafter Tamarac, The Center for Health and Well Being will be hosting an Alzheimer’s Program and services from 9am-12pm.
The Alzheimer’s Association will provide local residents with information about Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, including symptoms and effects of Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia; how Alzheimer’s affects the brain; causes and risk factors; how to find out if it’s Alzheimer’s disease; the benefits of early detection; how to address a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease; stages of the disease; treatment; hope for the future; and ways the Alzheimer’s Association can help.
Have questions related to memory loss and providing care for a person with Alzheimer’s disease? You are invited to meet one-on-one with an Alzheimer’s Association Care Consultant to discuss your concerns. To schedule your appointment please contact 800.272.3900 – Walk-ins welcome.
