This program is also offered at the Liberty Library on May 15.

Dementia is a general term for a decline in mental ability severe enough to interfere with daily life, while Alzheimer's is a specific disease. Alzheimer’s is the most common cause of dementia.  Learning about the two terms and the difference between them is important and can empower individuals living with Alzheimer’s or another dementia, their families, and their caregivers with the necessary knowledge.

The Alzheimer’s Association® provides care and support to those affected by Alzheimer’s and all other dementia through free, high-quality education programs.
