Alzheimer's Association to offer free program

MUNCIE — “Memory Loss, Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease: The Basics,” a free workshop on Alzheimer’s disease, will be held on Monday, Sept. 23, from 10 to 11 a.m. at Ball State University Alumni Center, 2800 W. Bethel Ave., Muncie.

There is no fee to attend the session, but registration is requested by contacting the Alzheimer’s Association at (800) 272-3900.

This program is designed to provide the basic information that everyone needs to know about memory loss issues and what they mean. Typical aging versus problematic memory changes will be covered as well as descriptions of the various causes of dementia. An overview of how Alzheimer’s affects the brain, causes and risk factors, and information on obtaining a diagnosis will also be covered.

Today, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer’s disease, including 120,000 Hoosiers. Alzheimer’s disease is the nation’s sixth leading cause of death. The direct and indirect costs of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias amount to more than $200 billion annually, according to the association.
