World Alzheimer’s Month

September is World Alzheimer’s Month

That said, please keep in mind…

The first person to survive Alzheimer’s disease likely will be in a clinical trial. Please support research.

There are no human “shells.” There are only human beings. Please honor the personhood of those living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias.

Search for ways to show persons living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias back to themselves.

Honor and support caregivers/care partners in tangible ways.

Hold politicians accountable to adequately fund research and care support.

Persons living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias are still living. Don’t regard them as dead.

Pray for persons living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias, caregivers/care partners, healthcare workers and other care professionals, policy-makers, researchers, and advocates.
