Memory Mobile to visit Pine Island

July 20, 2018
Cape Coral Daily Breeze

Together with the Beacon of HOPE and Centennial Bank, the Alzheimer's Association Florida Gulf Coast Chapter is bringing the Memory Mobile to Pine Island.

The Memory Mobile is a traveling office of the Alzheimer's Association intended to bring public awareness and dementia-related information to the community.

The Memory Mobile offers education and support to those living with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias and their caregivers. Services include disease information, community referrals, memory education and care consultations for caregivers and individuals in the early-stage of dementia. There is no charge for services.

It's hard to know the difference between age-related changes and potential signs of Alzheimer's disease. As people get older, their memory changes. But memory loss that disrupts daily life is not a typical part of aging. Dementia is a slow decline in memory, thinking and reasoning skills. Alz-heimer's disease is the most common type of dementia. Alzheimer's disease is a progressive, fatal disease that damages nerve cells which results in the loss of memory, thinking ability and brain function.

Early diagnosis is important. There are conditions that can look like Alzheimer's disease, but are treatable.

The Memory Mobile will be at Centennial Bank at 5551 Sunset St., in St. James City, Tuesday, July 24, with 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Call 239-283-5123 to schedule a 30-minute appointment.
