September is World Alzheimer's Month
September is World Alzheimer's Month, an international campaign to raise awareness and challenge stigma. It's a time for action, a global movement united by its call for change, but also a time to reflect on the impact of dementia, a disease that will affect more and more people as the years pass.
 
The theme for this year's World Alzheimer's Month campaign is   Remember Me. We're encouraging people all around the world to learn to spot the signs of dementia, but also not to forget about loved ones who are living with dementia, or who may have passed away.

The  impact of September's campaign is growing, but the stigmatization and misinformation that surrounds dementia remains a global problem. Each year, more and more countries are  participating in World Alzheimer's Month events and in many areas, dementia awareness is growing. 
 
The World Alzheimer's Report 2017 will update ADI's data on the numbers of people living with dementia and the cost of global dementia care, both now and in the future.

           
Don't forget, World Alzheimer's Day is on September 21st each year,
the pinnacle of World Alzheimer's Month.


With warmest regards,









Elayne Forgie, 
President/CEO

Counseling services should be chosen with care so that you find something that best meets your needs. Working with a trained mental health care provider, you can develop the right treatment plan; learn good coping skills and better manage communication, stress and anxiety.
