World Alzheimer’s Day
World Alzheimer’s Day, 21 September of each year, is a day on which Alzheimer’s organisations around the world concentrate their efforts on raising awareness about Alzheimer’s and dementia.
Every 68 seconds, someone develops Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s disease is often called a family disease, because the chronic stress of watching a loved one slowly decline affects everyone. With the increases in life spans and baby boomers coming of age, support for Alzheimer’s research is more critical to our families than ever.
