Last updated on Tuesday, July 24, 2012

(BEDFORD) - A “Know the 10 Signs,” a free workshop on detecting the warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease, will take place from 6-7 p.m. Aug. 7 at the Bedford Public Library.

The program is free, but registration is requested by contacting the Alzheimer's Association at (800) 272-3900.

"Know the 10 Signs" is a program developed by the Alzheimer's Association, and has information designed to help people understand the symptoms of the disease. The program also has interactive video clips of people living with Alzheimer's.

About 5.4 million Americans have Alzheimer's disease, including 120,000 Hoosiers. Every 68 seconds, someone develops Alzheimer's disease, making the disease the sixth leading cause of death. The direct and indirect costs of Alzheimer's disease and other Dementias amount to more than $200 billion annually.

The Alzheimer's Association is the world leader in Alzheimer's research and support. Having awarded more than $292 million to more than 2,000 research projects, the Alzheimer's Association is the largest private funder of Alzheimer research. For more information, visit www.alz.org/indiana.
