Alzheimer’s Awareness Month


November is Alzheimer’s Awareness Month in the U.S. My grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in the last year, and it has been an inspiration to watch her live her life and embrace her memories. She is still who she has always been, only now, her memory takes pieces of her yesterdays and tomorrows. I hope you will take time this November to remember those who have lost their lives to Alzheimer’s, those who still battle the disease, and the scientists and researchers still fighting for a cure.

You can find more information about the Force to End Alzheimer’s by searching and using the Twitter hashtag “#ENDALZ” then visit the Alzheimer’s Association’s Website.

I also created a Alzheimer’s Color by Number Sheet to use in the Locked Unit for Dementia Care Patients where myself and 4 other SLPs in-training visit each week. Feel free to download and share
