Benjamin L. Hooks Central Library

Event Details

Join us in the former Graduate Memphis Room in the Lobby of the Central Library for the program, "Is it Dementia?"
The early warning signs of Alzheimer's and other dementias can seem like normal aging. So how do you tell the difference? Whether you are concerned for yourself or for a loved one, learn how dementia affects the brain and changes memory, thinking and behavior. Participants will learn the five key changes in brain function caused by dementia, distinguish between normal and not normal aging, facilitate open communication about cognitive changes, and orient themselves in the role of caregiver.
This first workshop session includes a lecture, handbook and practice applying the new knowledge you acquire to your life.
