On Tuesday, November 26, The Watermark at 3030 Park will host a discussion on memory loss issues, including Alzheimer’s disease and different forms of dementia, in honor of National Alzheimer’s Awareness Month. The event will take place at 2:00 p.m. at the retirement community, located at 3030 Park Avenue on the Bridgeport/Fairfield town line.
The discussion will be led by Dr. Rahul Gupta, Medical Director at The Watermark at 3030 Park. Dr. Gupta will address the basics of memory loss, including signs and symptoms to look out for to help detect issues early. He will also discuss available treatment options, steps to lower the risk of developing any issues, and how memory loss affects patients and their families.
