10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer's In-Person
Alzheimer’s and other dementias cause changes in memory, thinking and behavior that interfere with daily life. Learn about 10 common warning signs and what to watch for in yourself and others. The program covers typical age-related changes, common warning signs of Alzheimer’s, how to approach someone about memory concerns, early detection, the benefits of a diagnosis and the diagnostic process, and Alzheimer’s Association resources. Community educator Gene Girimonte will be the featured speaker for this program. This is the first program in an Alzheimer’s and Dementia Community Education Series.
Gene Girimonte met the love of his life, Art Curtis, over 35 years ago. Together they dealt with the loss of family, civil rights issues and eventually Alzheimer’s. With the support of the Alzheimer’s Association, and other local organizations, Gene was able to care for Art until Art passed in 2018- 7 years after his diagnosis. Gene is now a volunteer community educator for the Alzheimer’s Association so that he can help other caregivers who may feel alone.
In collaboration with the Alzheimer's Association.
