The holidays inspire us to eat delicious food and spend time with family. As we share and create memories with our loved ones, we recognize and honor the differences in how we remember.
Alzheimer's is one of the most common forms of dementia, a term that describes memory loss and declining cognitive functions impairing daily life, affecting approximately 1 in every 2 families in the U.S.
While Alzheimer's typically affects adults aged 65 and older, a small percentage of adults under 65 also live with the condition.
Alzheimer’s, and other forms of dementia, impact communication, memory, and mood. Although there is currently no cure for Alzheimer’s, with support and community, those managing the disease can live a full life.
By better understanding Alzheimer’s, we are better able to appreciate the lives of caregivers, survivors, and those lost to the condition.
