Alzheimer’s Association Presents Coffee With Kodsi

Monday, April 07, 2014

On Monday, April 28 the Alzheimer’s Association, along with Morning Pointe of Chattanooga, will present “Coffee With Kodsi”, an informal question and answer event featuring Dr. Matthew Kodsi, a local neurologist and leader in the field of dementia care.  The event is 10-11:30 a.m., at Morning Pointe of Chattanooga, 7620 Shallowford Road.  It is free and open to the public. To RSVP, please call 423.296.0097.

Alzheimer’s disease is on the rise. The death rate from Alzheimer’s disease in Tennessee has risen 138 percent since the year 2000; the fifth highest Alzheimer’s death rate in the nation.

“Despite the prevalence of this devastating disease, there are often far more questions about it than answers, especially for those caring for loved ones who are affected,” stated Amy French, manager of programs for the local Alzheimer’s Association. “The Alzheimer’s Association is here to help. That’s why we offer programs to specifically meet the needs of caregivers in the community,” Ms. French explained.

For more information about Alzheimer’s disease and the services provided by the Alzheimer’s Association, visit their website at www.alz.org/altn, or contact the local office at 800.272.3900.
