November is National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month and National Family Caregivers Month

National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month
National Family Caregivers Month

The Alzheimer’s Association is marking these events by recognizing and honoring the more than 15 million family members and friends across the U.S. who are currently caring for a person living with Alzheimer’s.

An estimated 1,236 residents in Amador county area are caregivers for a loved one with Alzheimer's. Caregiving is demanding and life altering, yet a recent Alzheimer's Association survey shows that 1 out of 3 caregivers don't engage others to help.

Below is a short informational piece we've put together on the topic, "10 Ways to Help a Family Living with Alzheimer's".
