Get the information you need to understand Alzheimer’s

Alzheimer’s and other dementias cause changes in memory, thinking and behavior that interfere with daily life. MAC’s Life Bridges program and the Greater Maryland Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association have teamed up to bring you an important education series. You may register for just one or as many as you wish.
This free five-part virtual education program is designed to take you through the information you need to understand this disease.
The series will begin with learning the 10 warning signs of Alzheimer’s, explaining the difference between normal aging and Alzheimer’s or dementia.
Session 2 delves deeper to help viewers gain an understanding Alzheimer’s disease and other causes of dementia.
If you are caregiver of someone with Alzheimer’s or another dementia you will want to join us for sessions 3, 4 & 5 where we discuss dealing with difficult decisions like driving, assist you with effective communication techniques and help you understand the triggers of dementia-related behavior and best ways to respond.
