Dementia vs. Alzheimer’s: What’s the Difference and Why it Matters

All people with memory loss do not have dementia, and all people with dementia do not have Alzheimer’s disease. Understanding the difference between memory loss, Alzheimer’s disease and dementia is important in getting the right treatment and follow-up care. Learn what to do when your doctor suspects Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia. Presented by Mike Bius, Multimedia Education Manager, of the Alzheimer’s Association, Illinois Chapter. This webinar will be held on Thursday, July 19th at two times: 11am-12pm EST and 2pm-3pm EST. Registration is required by visiting ALZWebinars.org. Program provided by the Alzheimer’s Association.
