The Difference a Day Can Make

World Alzheimer’s Day is September 21. Alzheimer’s organizations across the globe combine efforts to raise awareness for Alzheimer’s and dementia. Ending Alzheimer’s starts with one voice – yours. Please take the day to acknowledge the struggle that more than 5 million Americans face. Read more about 5 ways you can honor World Alzheimer’s Day:

·      Wear that you care: Sell “Casual for a Cause” stickers for $5 to coworkers and dress down to help fund Alzheimer’s research and support services.
·      Feed the need: Get together with friends and family for “Dinner to Make a Difference” and ask them to donate what they would have spent on a night out to help aid those living with the debilitating disease.
·      Every moment counts: Every 67 seconds a person dies from Alzheimer’s. Mark a moment of silence in the workplace, church or at home.
·      Common bond: One of the most important ways to improve Alzheimer’s symptoms is social interaction. Be a part of the network by joining or starting a team for a Walk to End Alzheimer’s near you.
·      Lend a hand: Volunteer at an event or a caregiving facility and learn more about both the patients and caregivers facing Alzheimer’s everyday.

Any effort given is another day closer to ending Alzheimer’s. Share with us on Facebook what you plan on doing for World Alzheimer’s Day! Find out more about Alzheimer’s at today.
