Please join us for a free seminar on the critical issues surrounding the diagnosis and early stages of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.

Guest speaker Daniel Kuhn, LCSW and author of Alzheimer’s Early Stages: First Steps for Families, Friends and Caregivers, will answer these important questions and more:

  • What puts people at risk of getting the disease and how can we reduce those risks?
  • How can we maximize the quality of life for people with the disease?
  • What can families do to prepare for the challenges ahead?
