COLUMBUS – The Alzheimer’s Association Central Ohio Chapter hosts free community events in Zanesville.

A presentation on the 10 warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease will be held at the Muskingum County Center for Seniors on June 3 from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. Participants will learn how to recognize common symptoms of the disease, how to approach someone about memory problems, the importance of early detection and the benefits of a diagnosis, possible tests and assessments for the diagnostic process, and resources from the Alzheimer’s Association.

A caregiver support group meeting will be held at the senior center on June 11 from 1 to 2 p.m. Group members share experiences, tips and information and provide support in an environment facilitated by trained volunteers. The groups provide a place to share practical information about the challenges surrounding Alzheimer’s disease, as well as possible solutions and coping mechanisms. They also provide information about community resources.

To register for programs, call the Alzheimer’s Association helpline at 800-272-3900.
