Join us at Institute on Aging’s Enrichment Center in the Presidio for an informative talk on the 10 warning signs of dementia presented by the Alzheimer’s Association of Northern California and Northern Nevada. Alzheimer’s and other dementias cause memory, thinking, and behavior changes that interfere with daily living. Learn about common warning signs of Alzheimer’s and what symptoms to look for in yourself and others, as well as tips to approach someone who is experiencing changes in their memory, the benefit of early detection and diagnosis, and more. This event is FREE to attend, but registration is required. Please register on Eventbrite HERE.
