Normal Aging vs. Dementia - RP01308

Ever wonder how to tell the difference if you or someone you love are exhibiting the normal signs of aging or if some form of dementia is evident? This discussion will cover what the normal signs of aging are and how we all may at times exhibit what feels like dementia to us, but is really a very normal part of the aging process. The presentation will also cover when some of these signs may indicate a problem. This program will be presented by Patti Terkovich from Autumn Leaves of Glen Ellyn. The program is free to attend; however, space is limited so pre-registration is required.
