35 years of Alzheimer’s awareness

Nov 11th, 2019 | By | Category: News

November marks the 35th year that National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month has been observed in an effort to help the public learn about living with Alzheimer’s and related dementias, and the caregiving that goes into those lives.

The awareness effort is used in part by the Administration for Community Living, a division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, to advance the dementia capability of states and communities through its grant programs and the work of the National Alzheimer’s and Dementia Resource Center (NADRC).  Each year, the NADRC develops resources to support grantees and the general community in their work with individuals living with Alzheimer’s and related dementias, and their caregivers.
