Alzheimer’s Disease: Warning Signs and Making a Plan, with Jill Disney, Alzheimer’s Association

Dementia affects more than memory and is not normal aging. How do you know if there is something serious that needs to be addressed by a physician, and what do you do? Learn some common warning signs of dementia and steps to make a plan. In this podcast, we’re talking about “Alzheimer’s Disease: Warning Signs and Making a Plan”with Jill Disney of the Alzheimer’s Association. Jill has worked with the Alzheimer’s Association 2018 and leads a team of staff and volunteers who provide education programs, support groups, and other assistance when faced with a dementia diagnosis.
