Alzheimer’s is a disease, not a normal part of aging.
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia, affecting about 1 in 8 people over age 65.
It causes 60 – 80% of all dementia cases and is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States.
Alzheimer’s is a progressive brain disease, which means that it worsens over time. It destroys memory and thinking skills and, in later stages, physical functions.
At this time, there is no cure for Alzheimer’s.
A large portion of the clients we serve have a relative who has Alzheimer’s.
Alzheimer research is needed to find a cure for this deadly disease.
Please consider contributing to the Alzheimer Association or the Alzheimer’s Research Foundation.
Caregiver Champion has contributed to one of our client’s Alzheimer’s walk who lost her mother to this deadly disease.
