Recognize Alzheimer’s and Become an ALZ STAR
More than 1 in 37 Floridians are living with Alzheimer’s, with that number only expected to rise in the coming years. The warning signs of this progressive brain disease are often subtle, but recognizing them can help individuals receive an early diagnosis and improve their quality of life.
The Florida Department of Elder Affairs and the Alzheimer’s Association have partnered to create the ALZ STARS program, a joint initiative to bring increased awareness of dementia and the resources available to Floridians. This short program will help you:
- Identify the early warning signs of Alzheimer’s and other dementia.
- Take steps to receive an accurate diagnosis.
- Understand simple communication tips.
- Access resources provided by Florida’s Area Agencies on Aging (AAA), Memory Disorder Clinics (MDCs), and Dementia Care and Cure Initiative (DCCI) Task Forces.
Graduates will receive an official completion award identifying them as an ALZ STAR. Know the signs. Know the resources. Make a difference.
