September 12th, 2012 No Comments

In the world today, there are 35 million people and their families affected by dementia. In September, let’s help raise awareness for Alzheimer’s Disease. In New Jersey elder care, there are approximately 150,000 people over 65 who are affected with Alzheimer’s. Below are three ways you can help raise awareness.

  • 1. On September 21st (Alzheimer’s Action Day), wear purple. Change your profile photo in your social media accounts to the “End Alz” icon from the Alzheimer’s Awareness website.
  • 2. Be inspired by reading stories of those with Alzheimer’s and their families/caregivers.
  • 3. Spread awareness by telling your story or of those of a loved one.
