The Alzheimer's Association to offer classes at the Faulkner County Library

Early Detection Matters, the first in a series of classes and events offered by the Alzheimer’s Association and the Faulkner County Library, will be held at 2 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 5 at the library.

The classes, which will be held at varying times and dates throughout 2015, will address the 10 signs of Alzheimer’s, Understanding and Responding to Dementia Related Behaviors, The Basics of Memory Loss, and Conversations about Dementia. This series is intended to educate patients, families, and the public about Alzheimer’s disease.

Alzheimer’s is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States. The Alzheimer’s Association is the world’s leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer’s care, support and research.

With early detection, individuals can get the maximum benefit from available treatments and have more time to plan for the future.

All library programs are free and open to the public.
