Program to explore differences between dementia, normal aging

By Staff | Mar 10, 2021

To many, forgetfulness may seem a normal aspect of aging, but at what point does memory loss become a warning sign for Alzheimer’s or another dementia? On March 13 at 10:30 a.m., the Alzheimer’s Association will address this topic with a free virtual program.

Attendees of “I’m Having Trouble with My Memory, What Now?” will learn about the differences between normal aging, Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia, as well as the stages and risk factors of Alzheimer’s and the resources available to those facing the disease.

Guest speakers will include Dr. James Galvin, professor of neurology and psychiatry and behavioral sciences at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, and Dr. Arif Dalvi, director of both the St. Mary’s Medical Center Memory Disorders Center and the Comprehensive Movement Disorders Program at Palm Beach Neuroscience Institute.

The program is being sponsored in part by the Florida Department of Elder Affairs and the Pasco-Pinellas Area Agency on Aging.
