November is Alzheimer’s Awareness Month

Alzheimer’s disease currently affects more than 5.8 million Americans, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that number will grow to 14 million by 2060.

Alzheimer’s disease is not a normal part of aging. It is a progressive, degenerative brain disorder, characterized by plagues and tangles in brain tissue, that impacts memory, thinking and language skills, and the ability to carry out simple tasks.

Early detection matters. Memory screenings are an important first step toward early detection of memory issues. Screenings are simple, quick, and noninvasive, consisting of a series of questions to gauge memory, language, thinking skills and other intellectual functions. AFA provides free, virtual memory screenings every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday nationwide. Contact AFA at 866-232-8484 or visit www.alzfdn.org to learn more or to schedule an appointment.
