Did you know that September is World Alzheimer’s Month? World Alzheimer’s Month is an international campaign created to spread awareness about dementia and challenge its stigma. It’s essential to spread awareness because more than six million Americans live with Alzheimer’s. Below, learn what Alzheimer’s is and how to observe World Alzheimer’s Month.
What is Alzheimer’s?
Alzheimer’s is a type of dementia, a degenerative brain condition that affects memory, thinking, and behavior. Alzheimer’s worsens over time, it’s not contagious, and there is no cure. However, some treatments can delay Alzheimer’s progression. As well as medical treatments, you can delay Alzheimer’s by adopting a healthy lifestyle and being social.
How do I spread awareness for Alzheimer’s?
Alzheimer’s can feel isolating, but it doesn’t need to be. Open up by talking about your experiences with Alzheimer’s with loved ones and others. Additionally, you can educate others and encourage others to be supportive by speaking about Alzheimer’s on public platforms.
