Alzheimer’s Disease: Know the 10 Signs
and Why Early Detection Matters
This talk will explain the difference of normal memory
aging versus the first signs of Alzheimer’s; how to get a diagnosis;
and the importance of getting an early diagnosis
and what can be done after such a diagnosis.
Ocean City Free Public Library
Lecture Room N110
The speaker for these sessions is Len Smith, a volunteer speaker for the Alzheimer’s Association who speaks on their behalf throughout the Delaware Valley and South Jersey. Len‘s interest in Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) began in 1980 when his mother first had symptoms of AD and then intensified over the next 12 years as her memory completely disappeared and then went through it once again as his mother-in-law died of AD in 2010. Earlier this year Len went through the neuropsychological testing for dementia and will share what those tests entail.
