Hope for the Future

“Our value lies in what we are and what we have been, not in our ability to recite the recent past.” – Homer


While historians debate whether the Ancient Greek poet Homer suffered from Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia, it is a fact that right now more than 6.2 million Americans live with Alzheimer’s disease. With those numbers projected to more than double by 2050, the need for better ways to diagnose and treat the disease is abundantly clear: even if it hasn’t impacted your family yet, there is a very good chance it will. November is both National Alzheimer’s Awareness Month as well as National Family Caregivers Month, and as Alzheimer’s cases rise with the number of older Americans, we want to honor those family members providing care.


National Family Caregivers Month

November is National Caregivers Month, a time to recognize, celebrate, and honor family caregivers. Caregivers are everyday heroes who live amongst us. They serve selflessly and often make sacrifices. Family caregivers devote countless hours to care for loved ones, and they humbly help keep families and communities strong.
