Shining a Light on Alzheimer’s Disease: How the Alzheimer’s Association is Raising Awareness and Support for Families Affected by the Disease

June is Brain Awareness Month, and the Alzheimer’s Association is urging individuals to take charge of their brain health. With over 6.7 million Americans suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, it is the most common form of dementia. Dawne Bunn, director of the Tennessee Alzheimer’s Association, discusses how the organization is raising awareness about the disease and ways for people to get involved.

Bunn emphasizes the importance of support for families affected by Alzheimer’s disease. The organization offers free resources to help individuals navigate their journey with the disease. Recognizing early signs and symptoms such as memory loss and confusion can aid in early intervention and better treatment outcomes.

June 20 marks the summer solstice, a day to shine a light on Alzheimer’s disease and raise awareness. Local partnerships like Charter Living are participating in fundraising events such as The Longest Day to support research efforts and find a cure for the disease. These initiatives are crucial in creating a brighter future for those affected by Alzheimer’s disease.

Recent breakthroughs in Alzheimer’s disease treatment have brought hope for those living with this debilitating condition. Advancements targeting the underlying cause of the disease rather than just managing symptoms hold great promise for future treatments. The upcoming Alzheimer’s Association International Conference promises significant announcements regarding progress in Alzheimer’s research.
