Central New York Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association will offer a free online version of its program, “Understanding Alzheimer’s and Dementia,” at 10:30 a.m. Friday, May 15.
The program was originally scheduled to be held at Jervis Public Library, 613 N. Washington St., at that time.
According to the Alzheimer’s Association, “Understanding Alzheimer’s and Dementia” covers the basics of Alzheimer’s and dementia, explores the relationship between Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, examines what happens in a brain affected by Alzheimer’s and details the risk factors for and three general stages of the disease. The program also identifies FDA-approved treatments available for symptom management, looks ahead to what is on the horizon for Alzheimer’s research and offers helpful Alzheimer’s Association resources.
The program will be presented online through an easy-to-use system called BlueJeans, which can be accessed on a desktop, laptop computer, tablet, or smartphone.
