National Alzheimer's Disease Month
National Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month in November shines a spotlight on the
most common form of dementia. There is no cure for this disease that affects nearly 5.4
million Americans, and the number is growing.

under the age of 65. Over time, the disease becomes debilitating because of its
progressive nature. Available treatments slow the progression, but there is no cure.
Caregivers provide 24-hour care in most circumstances. As the disease progresses, the
stress becomes overwhelming. Often, they receive respite from visitors but many
become isolated as time passes. A broad spectrum of resources from support groups to
memory care educational tools provides caregivers assistance.
Continuing research requires support and early screening programs. As we increase
our knowledge of the disease and improve treatments, early intervention will improve
