I'm walking and volunteering with the Alzheimer's Assn in honor of my parents. When my father developed Alzheimer's, my mother cared for him at home until his very last year. A few years later, she was diagnosed with it too. I love and miss them both, and want to do what I can so some day no one else will have to experience this. I hope YOU will help me do this with your donation on this page.
People used to ask "did they forget your name?" That's the least of it! Dementia is a syndrome in which there is progressive deterioration in cognitive function beyond what might be expected from normal aging. It affects memory, thinking, orientation, comprehension, calculation, learning capacity, language, and judgment. Consciousness is not affected. This impairment is commonly accompanied, and occasionally preceded, by deterioration in emotional control, social behavior, or motivation. So - way more than just forgetfulness!!
Thank you for joining the movement! -- Lynn, family, and all others who are affected or care about someone who is. Way too many of us.
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
