This November, we join many others across the nation in building awareness for Alzheimer’s Disease.
Alzheimer’s Disease is the most common form of dementia and a leading cause of death among older adults in the U.S. It is a degenerative brain disease that attacks every part of our functioning, manifesting in both cognitive and physiological symptoms. President Ronald Reagan – himself later a victim of the disease – signed a proclamation declaring November Alzheimer’s Awareness Month in 1986.
Castle Senior Living is proud to offer top tier care and support to those who are living with Alzheimer’s Disease through our “A Smile to Remember” memory care program. In addition to supporting our residents, we also extend our support their families and friends who are on this journey with them. Our Dementia Care Practitioner and team of clinical experts designed our memory care program and educational offerings to transform the way people think about Alzheimer’s Disease and other dementias.
Awareness is the first step in changing peoples’ outlook of Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia, which is why Alzheimer’s Awareness Month is so important.
