September is World Alzheimer's Month

World Alzheimer's Month, begun in 2012, is the international campaign by Alzheimer's Disease International (ADI), an umbrella organization of over 100 Alzheimer associations around the globe, every September to raise awareness and challenge the stigma that surrounds dementia.

In the Chicagoland area, we have leading experts in the care of people who have dementia, research, and support. However, many people are still not informed about normal aging vs disease or accessing services. Learn more. Click here to learn about Dementia Friendly Communities,

We are always honored to assist people who have dementia and their loved ones. Contact Erin Vogt, LCSW, CMC, our client coordinator, to learn more how the appropriate legal planning for living with dementia can make a difference today..and in the future. You can also review our website.
