World Alzheimer’s Month and Doggies for Dementia Foundation
World Alzheimer’s Month is a global opportunity to raise awareness around, educate, encourage support of and demystify dementia. World Alzheimer’s Day takes place on 21 September as part of World Alzheimer’s Month.
Doggies for Dementia Foundation is a non-profit thats primary focus is to drive awareness towards dementia. They uniquely do this by capturing candid photos of those affected by dementia surrounded by their loved ones and, of course, their family pet.
What We Think You Should Know-
- People of many ages can be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. Every person at every age matters.
- Advice for those newly diagnosed and beginning their Alzheimer’s Journey: It’s a marathon and not a sprint-there is so much to learn and experience all of which can be very challenging BUT there are people along the way who are angels in disguise to support and care for you. Look for those.
Doggies for Dementia Foundation also provides oodles and oodles of resources for families.
