November is National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month and National Caregiver Month.
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. Find out more about Alzheimers Disease at the Alzheimer’s Association web site. They have information on the disease, caregiving, help resources, and event information.
In the United States, there are more than 15 million Alzheimer’s and dementia caregivers. We want to send these exceptional people a big “thank you” for everything they do. Honor them by sharing your tribute message!
