The Alzheimer’s Association is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to the care, support, and research of Alzheimer’s and other dementias. The organization was founded in 1980 and reaches millions of people across the world who are affected by one of the most critical public health issues in our country. Alzheimer’s is a type of dementia that affects memory, behavior and cognitive functions in individuals older than 65 years. It is especially debilitating because the symptoms worsen over time and has become the sixth leading cause of death in America.
Did you know that every 66 seconds, someone in America develops Alzheimer’s? Today, 1 in 3 seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia.
But all hope is not lost. Last year, the Alzheimer’s Association helped over 4 million people face the challenges and uncertainties of Alzheimer’s disease. They have invested over $25 million in scientific investigations to explore new research. Their research has shown that education in any stage of life will help reduce your risk of cognitive decline and dementia. Furthermore, staying socially engaged may support brain health.
Together, we can support research and patient outreach to care for those affected by this disease and ultimately find a cure.
