Riggle Room, ADUC
The terms Alzheimer's disease and dementia are often used interchangeably, yet they are not the same thing. A person who suffers from dementia may or may not have Alzheimer's, but everyone who has Alzheimer's will suffer from dementia.
At this workshop, you will learn about Alzheimer's disease, dementia and memory loss symptoms, causes and risk factors and understand their relation to normal aging and brain function.
