DID YOU KNOW??
More than 2 million Americans are living in nursing home assisted living facilities.
According to some estimates, more than 27,000 residents and workers have died from the coronavirus at nursing homes and other long-term care communities.
People with Alzheimer’s or other dementia make up a large proportion of the residents in these settings.
48% of nursing home residents have dementia.
42% of residents in residential care facilities, including assisted living facilities, have Alzheimer’s or other dementias.
Residents with dementia are particularly susceptible to COVID-19 due to their age, increased likelihood of coexisting chronic conditions, and the community nature of these settings.
I'm leading the way to Alzheimer's first survivor by participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®. Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 14 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease. Both my grandmother on my father's side and great aunt on my mom's side passed away with Alzheimer's. This disease affects so many families.
Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease. Please make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
Thank you for joining the fight against Alzheimer's!
