The word DEMENTIA on a blackboard revealed by a missing jigsaw puzzle piece

ZEELAND, Mich., September 12 Spectrum Health Zeeland Community Hospital is offering a free class about dementia as part of our Live Well Senior Seminar series. The class entitled “Is It Dementia?” will be held on Monday, September 25 from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Georgetown Connections in Jenison.

How do you know if your changes in memory are a normal part of the aging process or if they are caused by dementia? This interactive discussion, led by Nathan Zokoe, MD, Spectrum Health Medical Group, will highlight the difference between dementia and the Alzheimer’s disease. In addition, Dr. Zokoe will explain how these conditions are diagnosed and treated.

Each event in the Live Well Senior Seminar series will include free giveaways and refreshments, in addition to expert advice. For more information or to register, visit spectrumhealth.org/zeeland or call 616.748.2834.
