The Alzheimer’s Association is partnering with the Waltham COA to present a workshop on the basic issues of Alzheimer’s disease, Monday, October 22nd, from 1:00-2:00 p.m., at 488 Main Street in Waltham. This program is free and open to the public.
“Alzheimer's disease is not a normal part of aging,” said Paul Raia, PhD, Vice President of Clinical Services. “This comprehensive program focuses on obtaining the correct diagnosis, understanding and addressing behavior and communication problems, and finding local resources and support.”
“Basics” provides information about Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, the benefits of early detection, causes and risk factors, treatment, and services offered by the Alzheimer's Association.
