Alzheimer’s Association to offer new class on warning signs

Tuesday, December 28, 2010 | 1:17 p.m. CST

COLUMBIA — The Mid-Missouri Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association will offer classes on the early warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease starting in January.

“Know the 10 Signs: Early Detection Matters” will focus on the difference between age-related memory loss and Alzheimer’s. It will also cover the 10 warning signs of the disease and the causes and risk factors, said Patti Coble, administrative assistant for the association.

Class schedule

  •  Jan. 20: 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., Alzheimer’s Education Center, 2400 Bluff Creek Drive.
  • Feb. 17: 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., Alzheimer’s Education Center.
  • March 8: 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., Daniel Boone Regional Library. (Date subject to change.) 
  • April 21: 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., Alzheimer’s Education Center
  • May 19: 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., Alzheimer’s Education Center.
  • June 16: 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., Daniel Boone Regional Library. (Date subject to change.)


Courses are scheduled from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m once a month from January through June. The first course on Jan. 20 will be at Alzheimer’s Education Center, 2400 Bluff Creek Drive. The content of the class will be roughly the same from month to month.

Admission is free. Members of the public are encouraged to register online because of room capacity, but it is not required. The room at the Alzheimer's Education Center can hold about 45 to 50 people, Coble said. 

Four of the six meetings are slated to be held at the center, and two are scheduled for the Columbia Public Library, 100 W. Broadway. 

Any questions may be directed to the association at 443-8665 or 800-272-3900. More information about the courses and other educational programs offered at the local chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association can be found at www.alz.org/mid-missouri.
