High Point Medical Center Presents “Understanding Alzheimer’s Disease”
HIGH POINT, NC – Most of us eventually notice some slowed thinking and occasional problems with remembering certain things. However, serious memory loss, confusion and major changes in the way our minds work may be a sign of more.
Alzheimer's Disease is the most common form of dementia accounting for 60 to 80 percent of dementia cases but it is not a normal part of aging. Although the greatest known risk factor is increasing age with the majority of people being 65 and older,
Alzheimer's is not just a disease of old age. Up to five percent of people with Alzheimer's have early onset, which appears in the 40s or 50s.
Join Dr. Keith Miller for an open discussion of signs, symptoms and the latest treatments that can slow the worsening of dementia symptoms and improve quality of life for those with Alzheimer's and their caregivers.
