Although the National Alzheimer’s Awareness month is in November, is never too early to start walking for a good cause and share important information that can help combat the threat that’s affecting more than 5 millions of Americans.
A good way to bring awareness is by encouraging people to know and share the following concepts which could help start slowing or preventing further brain damage in a person:
Alzheimer’s is usually detected at the end stage of the disease– Patients go undiagnosed and untreated for years.
Memory loss is not normal at any stage– Aging is not an excuse to accept memory loss. Regardless of the cause for it, medical attention is necessary immediately.
Alzheimer’s drugs are effective– Early intervention allows patients to respond more vigorously to treatment due to healthier brains.
Alzheimer’s can be treated-“No Cure” does not mean “No Treatment”. Exercising, keeping a good diet, taking certain drugs are key to treat the disease.
Being that a portion of our residents have Alzheimer, Guardian Pharmacy of SEFL will join Aston Gardens Senior Living on their 7th annual “Mini” Memory Walk to raise money, support those with the disease and bring awareness to their loved ones.
