Community Education: 10 Early Signs and Symptoms of Alzheimer's
VOYCE Community Education Series webinar in association with Alzheimer’s Association, Greater Missouri

By 2050, the number of people aged 65 and older with Alzheimer’s dementia is projected to reach 12.7 million. As the size of the U.S. population age 65 and older continues to increase, the number of Americans with Alzheimer’s or other dementias will grow.

Knowing how to identify the early signs and symptoms of Alzheimer’s can make a great difference in terms of providing appropriate care and support for someone with Alzheimer’s.

This session is geared to:

1. Identify normal aging vs. a potential problem
2. Open lines of communication between family and physicians
3. Discuss resources available to people
