right-at-home%20logo%201_0.jpgContrary to popular belief, Alzheimer’s is not a disease specific to older adults. Early-onset Alzheimer’s appears in people younger than age 65, which make up about 5 percent of Alzheimer’s patients. This web seminar will provide an overview of early-onset Alzheimer’s disease, followed by information on the challenges patients and caregivers face with a diagnosis, issues around care and financial, legal and social concerns.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Define early-onset Alzheimer’s;
  • Describe the challenges associated with early-onset that are not typically seen with late-onset Alzheimer’s;
  • Identify financial and legal issues facing families dealing with early-onset Alzheimer’s; and,
  • List resources available to help those with early-onset Alzheimer’s and their caregivers.
