WORLD ALZHEIMER’S DAY – September 21

World Alzheimer's Day is a day on which Alzheimer’s organizations around the world concentrate their efforts on raising awareness about Alzheimer’s and dementia.

When a doctor says a person has dementia,

what does that mean?

What do you do, say and ask?

Watch the Alzheimer's Association's Chief Programs Officer talk about it in clear, easy terms.

World’s Alzheimer’s Day – September 21

Alzheimer’s disease is often called a family disease, because the chronic stress of watching a loved one slowly decline affects everyone.

5.4 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s.

Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States and the only cause of death among the top 10 in the United States that cannot be prevented, cured or even slowed.

With the increases in life spans and baby boomers coming of age, support for Alzheimer’s research is more critical to our families than ever.

A staggering 46.8 million people across the world are battling with dementia,  a figure that is predicted to almost double by the year 2030 and for those who have a loved one affected by the condition.

BE A PART OF THE CURE!
