Community Partners in Caring and the University Club of Santa Barbara will present Know the 10 Signs, a workshop about early detection of Alzheimer’s disease, 2-3:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 10, at the University Club of Santa Barbara, 1332 Santa Barbara St.

Early detection of Alzheimer’s affords a chance to begin drug therapy, enroll in clinical studies and plan for the future. The interactive workshop features video clips of people with Alzheimer’s disease.

Suzette Cobb, a Community Voices educator for the Santa Barbara Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association will be the featured speaker. She is a certified senior advisor, long term-care ombudsman for Santa Barbara County, and is RCFE-certified as an administrator. She holds a BA in psychology and an MA in education/counseling.

By the end of the presentation, attendees will be able to identify the 10 warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease and know what to do next if you are experiencing signs of Alzheimer’s; understand what is involved in getting a diagnosis; identify the risk of Alzheimer’s, including connections to other conditions; and understand the benefits of early detection.

Community Partners in Caring is a 21-year-old agency designed to help seniors live independently while maintaining dignity, respect and quality of life.

“The Empowered Aging Speakers Series continues to be a stimulating and valuable addition to our local community,” said Joni Meisel, member of the South County Advisory Council of Community Partners in Caring. “We are delighted that this signature program is being continued by Community Partners in Caring and the University Club of Santa Barbara.”
