Learn the warning signs of Alzheimer’s program set for Tuesday

Every 66 seconds across the United States, someone develops Alzheimer’s disease. Early diagnosis is critical to ensure that families can plan for the future together, take advantage of available resources and take part in social engagement programs where they can interact and connect with others facing similar challenges. A major step toward ensuring a timely diagnosis is the recognition that someone may be having difficulties with memory and cognition.

The Alzheimer’s Association Western New York Chapter is offering an educational program to help recognize potential warning signs of memory problems. Know the 10 Signs: Early Detection Matters is an interactive workshop scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 9 from 5 to 6 p.m. at the Dunkirk Public Library, 536 Central Ave., Dunkirk. The class is free and open to the public.

For more information, call 1-800-272-3900. The Chapter’s website is also an excellent source for information about the 10 Signs, other free classes and programs, and resources available across Chautauqua County: alz.org/WNY.
