November is National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month!

Pre-engraved Alzheimer’s medical ID braceletThere are 50 million people worldwide living with Alzheimer’s and dementia. Alzheimer’s is a type of dementia that results in thinking, memory, and behavior problems and is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. November has been National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month since 1983, and the goal is to educate the public about this disease and its symptoms and treatment.

There is currently no cure for Alzheimer’s disease, which is why this month is so important. Researchers are continually looking for new and effective treatments, as well as a cure for this disease. Alzheimer’s affects so many lives, both of the diagnosed and their family. With better treatments and a potential cure in place, millions of lives could be spared the pain and challenges this disease brings.

Common symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease include memory loss, trouble solving problems, confusion with time or place, inability to retrace steps, and sudden mood or personality changes.
