One out of every 10 New Yorkers age 60 and older have reported some form of memory loss.

Data supporting that startling statistic was recently released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

This confirms the growing impact of memory loss, and underscores the need for individuals to talk to their doctors about memory problems.

The Western New York Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association is offering a series of online classes for family caregivers.

The Family Caregiver Lunchtime Webinar Series is offered monthly on Mondays, and will cover such topics as care options, caregiver stress, and managing difficult behaviors.
