The purpose of The Longest Day is to raise awareness for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. From sunrise to sunset, families and friends of all ages will be choosing an activity to raise funds and awareness for research and programs to end Alzheimer’s disease.
March is International Women’s month. For those of us focused on advancing innovative technologies that bring hope and help to families battling dementia, we remember that Alzheimer’s disease impacts women more than men. Women are more likely to develop the disease and women are more likely to provide unpaid care for individuals experiencing dementia.
