Free Alzheimer's Educational Materials

Loss of cognitive functioning - thinking, remembering, and reasoning to such an extent that it interferes with a person’s life - exacts a tremendous toll on Iowans with Alzheimer’s disease and family caregivers. It is hard to know the difference between age-related changes and the first signs of the chronic disease. Diagnosing Alzheimer’s disease early can slow the disease progression and help families make appropriate preparations.

The Alzheimer’s Association has developed a brochure, Know the 10 Signs: Early Detection Matters, which can be very useful to professionals and caregivers in identifying a list of typical age-related changes and early signs of Alzheimer’s.

To order free copies of the brochure, contact the Alzheimer’s Association at 515-440-2722 or email requests to rmills@alz.org
