NATIONAL ALZHEIMER’S AND BRAIN AWARENESS MONTH
June is Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month — an opportunity to hold a conversation about the brain, and share the fact that Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias are a major public health issue. Everyone who has a brain is at risk to develop Alzheimer’s, the only leading cause of death that cannot be prevented, cured or even slowed. During the month of June, the Alzheimer’s Association® asks people around the world to wear Purple and use their brains to fight Alzheimer’s disease.
BY THE NUMBERS
RECOGNIZE THE SIGNS
Each person’s experience with Alzheimer’s disease is unique. Symptoms may change frequently, and the progression of symptoms will differ from person to person. Our “Alzheimer’s & Dementia Checklist” is designed to help caregivers track the type and frequency of symptoms exhibited by their loved one. Do you recognize these signs?
