    SEPTEMBER IS WORLD ALZHEIMER’S MONTH

     Alzheimer’s is a progressive disease that impairs memory and other mental functions. It is the most common form of dementia that generalizes memory loss and loss of other essential cognitive abilities that are serious enough to interfere with an individual’s daily life. One in 10 people age 65 and older has Alzheimer’s. Join us this month, as we will work to raise awareness on dementia. Every day after lunch we will show a short clip about Alzheimer’s. Some clips are  emotional, some are funny and all of them are educational.
