MAUMEE – The Alzheimer’s Association Northwest Ohio Chapter will hold a virtual educational program on “The 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s.”

The program will run on Zoom on Tuesday at 11 a.m., Dec. 8 at 11 a.m. and 5:30 p.m., and Dec. 15 at 6 p.m.

“This program is our most important community program,” said Pam Myers, program director. “When you or your loved ones begin to notice changes in behavior, it is important to know what might be a warning sign of Alzheimer’s and how to access help/resources to ensure an accurate diagnosis.”

● Describes typical age-related memory, thinking or behavioral changes
