Sunrise Terrace hosting public service presentation on Alzheimers

In cooperation with the Burlington office of the Alzheimer?s Association, Sunrise Terrace is hosting a public service presentation to bring to the Winfield area the most current information on Alzheimers on Thursday, April 12, at 10 a.m. at Sunrise Terrace.

The presentation will focus on areas of knowing and recognizing the 10 warning signs of Alzheimer?s disease and related disorders.

As the U.S. population continues to age and enjoy longer lives, the prevalence of age-related memory disorders is expected to rise. The speaker will provide information to help identify if changes in behavior are the result of normal aging, or are indicators of a more serious problem.

It can be helpful to recognize the signs of difficulty early, and to identify treatment options. As with other diseases, early diagnosis and treatment may help delay the onset or reduce the effects of the disease.

Caregivers sometimes find themselves overwhelmed with changes in the relationship, to the point that it becomes challenging to continue. Having access to information, including coping strategies, can remove some of the anxiety that often accompanies the behavioral changes.

There is no charge for this presentation. Anyone interested in taking advantage of this helpful information is invited to attend. Call 319-257-3303 to reserve seat(s).
