More than 340,000 Texans have Alzheimer's... and nearly one in every three seniors inAmericawho dies each year has Alzheimer's or another dementia(Alzheimer's Association).  It's a pervasive disease.

So one memory care company has set a personal mission to educate anyone and everyone about the illness.  Which is what Memory Care of Westover Hills will start doing two weeks from today (Thursday, January 28th) as they celebrate the opening of their newest community inSan Antonio.  Dr. Robert Parker, geriatrician and Chief of the Division of Community Geriatrics at the University of Texas Health Sciences Center, will hold a public forum about dementia and how it is diagnosed for anyone who may want to know more about the ailment.  Parker is a past "Best Doctor inAmericaandSan Antonio." 

The event is open to anyone, but it must be RSVP'd to  (Media can just show up without RSVPing.)   Tours of the facility will be available. More information is in the attached release.  For sharing with your members.  And if you're interested in more depth on this, I can connect you to our executive director, medical director or other experts.  Thanks.
