The Western New York Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association will offer a free education program on recognizing and understanding Alzheimer’s disease and dementia from 6-7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 1, at the Lewiston Public Library, 305 S. Eighth St.

“The program will help participants learn about the differences between Alzheimer’s and normal aging, and what to do if you suspect dementia in yourself or a loved one,” said Andrea Koch, director of education and training for the WNY Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association. “With new treatments available for early-stage Alzheimer’s, it is more important than ever to be evaluated by a health care professional if Alzheimer’s is suspected.”

The program will also cover the difference between Alzheimer's and other dementias, risk factors, stages of the disease, and Alzheimer's Association resources for care and support. Individuals can register online at bit.ly/LewPLAug23 or by calling 800-272-3900.
