What is Alzheimer’s Disease?

Alzheimer’s is a degenerative brain disease that is caused by complex brain changes following cell damage. It leads to dementia symptoms that gradually worsen over time. The most common early symptom of Alzheimer’s is trouble remembering new information because the disease typically impacts the part of the brain associated with learning first.

As Alzheimer’s advances, symptoms get more severe and include disorientation, confusion and behavior changes. Eventually, speaking, swallowing and walking become difficult. There is no way to prevent, cure or even slow Alzheimer’s disease.

About the Alzheimer’s Family and Caregiver Support Group

Riverside Medical Clinic Charitable Foundation’s Alzheimer’s Family and Caregiver Support Group provides a forum to meet, share information and offer encouragement in caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease. Monthly meetings address various issues such as diagnosis, symptom management, caregiver stress, and other important subjects.

While the Alzheimer’s Family and Caregiver Support Group usually meets on the Lower Level of the Riverside Medical Clinic’s Main Campus at 7117 Brockton Avenue in Riverside on the second Wednesday of each month, during this time due to COVID-19, we have moved our support groups online for the time being.

Virtual meetings are FREE and participants are welcome from all medical groups. Spouses, partners, adult family members, close friends, and caregivers are welcome to attend.
