November is Alzheimer's Awareness Month


In 1983, then President Ronald Reagan designated November as national Alzheimer’s Awareness month. Today, according to the national Alzheimer’s Association, 5.7 million people are living with a diagnosis of this specific form of dementia. We know that thousands more are undiagnosed and living with the disease. At CLC, we consider family members as also “living with dementia” because it is a whole family, whole community disease process. We strive to help individuals and their family live as successfully as possible at each stage of the disease process.

This November, we want to honor the spirit of each person, each family and each community supporting someone living with Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia – we honor and support you.
