Library to host Alzheimer’s workshops

— Two educational workshops will be presented at the Cazenovia Public Library by the Central New York Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association.

The first session, “Know the 10 Signs: Early Detection Matters,” will be held at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, June 6 in the Community Room of the library. Early detection of Alzheimer’s disease gives patients a chance to begin drug therapy, enroll in clinical studies and plan for the future. This interactive workshop will feature video clips of people with Alzheimer’s disease.

The second workshop, “Memory Loss, Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease,” will be held at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, June 13 in the Community Room of the library. Alzheimer’s disease is not a normal part of aging. This program provides information on detection, causes and risk factors, stages of the disease, treatment and much more.

Register by calling the Alzheimer’s Association at 472-4201 ext. 125.
