Newton Presbyterian Manor to offer free Alzheimer’s, dementia virtual workshop

Alzheimer’s disease is not a normal part of aging. Alzheimer’s, a degenerative brain disease, is the most common form of dementia. However, dementia is not a specific disease, but rather a term that describes a group of symptoms related to memory and cognitive function.

According to statistics from the Alzheimer’s Association, 50 million people worldwide live with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.

Join Newton Presbyterian Manor for Just Ask: Understanding Alzheimer’s and Dementia, a free virtual event, at 2 p.m. April 7 to learn about the impact of Alzheimer's, the difference between Alzheimer's and dementia, stages and risk factors, current research and treatments available for some symptoms, and Alzheimer's Association resources.

Registration is open online or by contacting Haley Young, outreach and dementia care specialist with the Alzheimer’s Association, at 800-272-3900 or hdyoung@alz.org.

The three-part series is part of Newton Presbyterian Manor’s Just Ask lifelong learning program, featuring topics and speakers of interest to seniors and their adult children. Future topics include Dementia Conversations May 5 and Healthy Living for Your Brain and Body June 2. Check out a list of future events.
