Press Release 

The Western New York Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association will hold an educational program on the common warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, and the importance of early detection. The free event, “Know the 10 Warning Signs,” will take place at 6 p.m. Tuesday, May 7, at the Niagara Wheatfield Central School District, at 5700 West St., Sanborn.

Facilitators will discuss how to recognize common signs of the disease; how to approach someone about memory concerns; the importance of early detection and benefits of a diagnosis; possible tests and assessments for the diagnostic process; and free local resources available through the Alzheimer's Association.

“With the recent FDA approval of the drug Leqembi to help people in the early stage of Alzheimer’s, timely diagnosis is more important than ever, and gives people the opportunity to make choices about their health and future,” said Andrea Koch, director of education at the WNY Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association.
