November is Alzheimer’s Awareness Month
Posted By alz01 On October 21, 2010 @ 5:05 am In | No Comments
Every 70 seconds, another American family is affected by Alzheimer’s.
Alzheimer’s is a complex neurological disease that is the most common form of dementia. More than 5 million people in the United States have Alzheimer’s and more than 10 million are caring for a loved one with the disease.
Many of us here at Fisher Center Foundation know the devastation of Alzheimer’s firsthand. Our families, like yours, have had to make so many difficult decisions about a loved one’s long-term care, financial assets and both physical and mental health. Dealing with Alzheimer’s is not an easy task and, because Alzheimer’s affects each sufferer and caregiver differently, there is never one right way to cope.
As we honor our loved ones this November, Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, we would like to offer you the opportunity to arm yourself with the best information on Alzheimer’s disease. A better understanding of the disease can prepare you for the road ahead. We have also revised our Caregivers Corner to include up to date information that will help if you are caring for someone with Alzheimer’s. We hope that you find the information useful and that you gain a better understanding of this disease.
A great way to honor those you love during Alzheimer’s Awareness Month is to make a donation in their name. Donate Online to make Alzheimer’s nothing but a memory for everyone.
Thank you for visiting ALZinfo.org and we hope that you have a happy and healthy November.
