Tudor Oaks Hosts Alzheimer’s Association Presentation January 19Posted on: December 16, 2015
Tudor Oaks Senior Living Community hosted the Alzheimer’s Association Presentation “Know the 10 Signs: Early Detection Matters” on January 19 in the Tudor Oaks Olive Wood Theatre. The event was free and open to the public.
As you may know, Alzheimer's is a terrible disease that primarily affects people over the age of 65. Today an estimated 5.3 million Americans of all ages have Alzheimer's, and nearly two thirds of those affected are women. These numbers continue to grow as the population ages. Alzheimer's is also the 6th leading cause of death in America, and a startling one in three seniors today pass away with some form of Alzheimer’s or dementia.
Learning more about Alzheimer’s Disease and its early warning signs can lead to its early detection. Early detection gives those affected a chance to begin drug therapy, enroll in clinical studies and plan for the future. If you or someone you know is experiencing memory loss or behavioral changes, it’s time to learn the facts.
In our ongoing effort to offer the latest in health care, Tudor Oaks partnered with the Alzheimer’s Association to help families gain a better understanding of the disease and help those who live with this condition.
The Alzheimer's Association's Jennifer Harders presentation covered a variety of topics related to Alzheimer’sm such as; how to recognize the warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease that are often dismissed as normal aging, separating Alzheimer’s myth from reality, and addressing commonly held fears about Alzheimer’s in America today.
