Fact, more than five million Americans have Alzheimer disease, affecting one in three seniors.  It's the sixth leading cause of death in the United States.  In 2013, Alzheimer's will cost the nation $203 billion. This number is expected to rise to $1.2 trillion by 2050.

The Texoma area is fortunate to have an expert in the care of dementia and Alzheimer available to help with education and treatment. Dr. Vanessa Ohnes is a Geriatric Medicine Doctor in Denison, Texas. She specializes in the aging process and the elderly.

On November 14, 2013, Dr. Ohnes will be part of a Senior Adults Health Seminar focusing on Alzheimers and Dementia. Participants will learn about normal aging vs. dementia. What are the symptoms of dementia? Those who register will also get a glimpse into dementia thru a dementia tour.

Caregivers are welcome and are invited to bring those they are caring for. Assistance will be provided so the learning experience will not be interrupted, adult daycare/respite care will be provided.

Vendors who specialize in memory or elder care are also welcome to participate.

Those interested need to RSVP by November 8, 2013 at caregiversRSVP@gmail.com
