The Alzheimer’s Association Western New York Chapter is offering a special educational opportunity to learn more about Lewy Body Dementia (LBD). The symptoms of this type of dementia closely resemble Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases. LBD is the second most common form of degenerative dementia, with treatment options that may help with cognition, movement and behavioral issues.
Local dementia experts Dr. Jessica Englert, a Buffalo-based clinical neuropsychologist, and Sarah Harlock with the Integrative Center for Memory at Dent Neurologic Institute, will lead this free program at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 27. The program will take place at the Association’s Williamsville Chapter office at 2805 Wehrle Drive, Suite 6 (at the corner of Harris Hill).
Registration is required by calling 1-800-272-3900.
