Contrary to popular belief, Alzheimer’s is not a disease specific to seniors. Early-onset Alzheimer’s appears in people under the age 65 – about 5 percent of Alzheimer’s patients. This web seminar will provide an overview of early-onset Alzheimer’s disease, followed by information on the challenges patients and caregivers face with a diagnosis and care, including financial, legal and social issues.
Participants in this web seminar will be able to:
- Define early-onset Alzheimer’s
- Describe the challenges associated with early-onset not typically seen with late-onset Alzheimer’s
- Identify financial and legal issues facing families dealing with early-onset Alzheimer’s
- List resources available to help those with early-onset Alzheimer’s and their caregivers
