The Alzheimer’s Association is pleased to announce the date for its Longest Day event, to be held June 21, 2013. This sunrise-to-sunset event is held each year to honor those living with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers, as well as to raise awareness for Alzheimer’s education, research, and treatment. The Alzheimer’s Association is encouraging all of its supporters to participate to make this year’s event a great success.
Nearly 5.1 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s. The disease is thought to be the most widespread cause of dementia for older people; they experience the loss of cognitive and behavioral abilities to the extent that it interferes with their daily lives.
For more than three decades, the Alzheimer’s Association has worked to advance support for individuals effected by Alzheimer’s all over the world. Since 1982, the organization has raised more than $300 million to assist on-going research for a cure.
