"Know the 10 Signs: Early Detection Matters" will be presented by the Alzheimer's Association, Central N.Y. Chapter, at 7 p.m. on Wednesday Feb. 9 in the Community Room.
If you or someone you know is experiencing memory loss or behavioral changes, it's time to learn the facts. Early detection of Alzheimer's disease gives you a chance to begin drug therapy, enroll in clinical studies and plan for the future. This interactive workshop features video clips of people with Alzheimer's disease.
And don't forget that free transportation through CRIS-CAT is provided for Cazenovia, Fenner, and Nelson residents over 55 and ambulatory. Just call 655-0612 between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. three to five days in advance.
