Ideas to Celebrate Alzheimer's & Brain Awareness Month
Go purple at your school or office! Encourage your coworkers or students to wear purple on Monday, June 20. Decorate your breakroom or common area in purple. Hang some streamers and balloons. Post facts about Alzheimer's disease at your workplace, group meeting, or place of worship to raise awareness. Use and wear purple. Everyone loves a casual work day! Make sure to post your purple on social media using the hashtags #GOPURPLE and #ENDALZ.
You can use the following facts to spread awareness. And as always, turn to Mountain Home Care when you need assistance. Suggest us to those you know who are dealing with Alzheimer’s and Dementia in their families. We are here to help!
The number of Americans living with Alzheimer's is growing — and growing fast. An estimated 5.7 million Americans of all ages have Alzheimer’s.
Alzheimer's disease is the only top 10 cause of death in the United States that cannot be prevented, cured or even slowed.
Eighty-three percent of the help provided to older adults in the United States comes from family members, friends or other unpaid caregivers. Nearly half of all caregivers who provide help to older adults do so for someone with Alzheimer's or another dementia.
