November is National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month

Written by: on November 15, 2019 @ 2:46 pm


In 1983, President Ronald Reagan designated November as National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month.

At that time, the number of patient diagnosed with Alzheimer’s less than 2 million. Now, the number of folks diagnosed with the disease has grown to more than 5.4 million.

As caregivers, it is important for us to know the warning signs.

If you or someone you know is suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease, more information can be found at: https://www.alz.org/events/nadam
