June is recognized as Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month, a time to raise awareness and promote understanding of Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. Alzheimer’s disease is a brain disorder that affects millions of people worldwide, and its impact extends beyond just the individual diagnosed with the disease. At Preferred Living Solutions, we understand the importance of providing support and resources for individuals and families impacted by Alzheimer’s disease, and we are here to help.
Alzheimer’s is a progressive brain disorder affecting memory, thinking, and behavior, with symptoms including memory loss, confusion, difficulty communicating, and more. Maintaining brain health is essential for preventing or delaying the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. You can maintain brain health by staying physically active, eating a healthy diet, getting enough sleep, staying mentally stimulated, and managing stress. This disease affects an estimated 6.7 million Americans over the age of 65, making it the most common form of dementia.
If someone you love has recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, we offer several resources for both of you. We have a staff of experienced professional Care Managers who can act as a guide that identifies, arranges, and manages community resources and services needed. They can help families save money by making more cost-effective choices, and help in making the most of insurance and other financial resources.
You can show your support throughout the month of June by wearing purple items, as well as sharing your story on how caring for someone with Alzheimer’s has personally affected you. We also encourage you to get involved in supporting brain research and support services such as ours. When you have Preferred Living Solutions in your corner, know that you are never alone – contact us today at 919-554-0675.
