Alzheimer's Awareness Month!
Go Purple for Alzheimer's Disease Awareness and Caregivers Month.
In 1983, President Ronald Reagan designated November as National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month. At that time, fewer than 2 million Americans had Alzheimer’s... sadly this has changed! Today, the number of people with the disease has risen to nearly 5.4 million.
Take moment to reflect, get involved, and help raise awareness for Alzheimer’s disease! Every person can make a difference!
Mayors in cities around the state are declaring November Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness and Caregivers Month!
Wear your purple with purpose, pride and help to educate others along the way!
Spread the word and help the cause!
