November is Alzheimer's Awareness Month
Worldwide it is estimated that about 16 million people have Alzheimer's disease. 4.5 million of them are Americans. For every person with Alzheimer's there is often at least one other person who directly cares for them and a host of healthcare and social workers, advocates, volunteers, and support workers in the background.
Our Alzheimer's Support Group meets the second and fourth Wednesday of every month (except December), 6-7:30pm, in Faith Hall, Room 353. More info? Call Karen Weaver at 407-514-4340.
