Protect the Ones You Love: Learn the Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s

By Claire Lindsey, Journalism Intern

The Latino Community Center’s June Women’s Health Series Event will help you identify the 10 warning signs of Alzheimer’s Disease.

    On June 17th from 6-7 pm, the Latino Community Center will be holding a Zoom event to present information about Alzheimer’s and Dementia provided by the Alzheimer’s Association Greater Pennsylvania Chapter. The goal is to educate Latinx women about how these diseases can affect their lives, and how to support women who act as caregivers. 

    The workshop will cover:

● Typical age-related brain and memory changes

● Common warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease

● How to talk to your loved one about their memory concerns

● Early detection, the benefits of getting a diagnosis, and the process of diagnosis

● Additional resources from Alzheimer’s Association

All are welcome, and the event will be offered in Spanish. To register, call 412-335-7446 and press option 1. Registration is free but required for admittance.

This event is just one of many in the Women’s Health Series, which is a monthly support group for women to meet and discuss important topics. The group covers topics like empowerment, children, relationships, and more. Other events in this series can be found on the LCC’s event calendar.
