The Central New York Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association will present “Living With Alzheimer’s for People With Younger-Onset Alzheimer’s” at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 30, at Jervis Public Library in the auditorium. The program is free and open to the public.

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, when someone under age 65 is diagnosed with Younger-Onset Alzheimer’s or related dementia, the first reaction is often shock or denial. This program will address the benefits of early diagnosis, genetic links, employment issues, legal and financial matters, life after diagnosis and daily strategies for living with the disease. 

Registration for this program is required by contacting the Alzheimer’s Association at 315-617-4025, extension 100. For more information about Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, visit the association’s website at www.alz.org or visit the Information Desk at the library.
