Are some things striking you as unusual about Mom or Dad during the holidays this year? Are there some differences in their actions that you haven’t noticed before?
Everyone will experience some typical changes as we age. However, memory loss is one of the most common signs of Alzheimer’s, and some other signs may be indications that Alzheimer’s is setting in. Per the Alzheimer’s Association <link: https://www.alz.org/ alzheimers_disease_10_signs_of_

If you notice any of these early warning signs, don’t ignore them. Make an appointment with a doctor right away. Early detection ensures the maximum benefit from available treatments, relieving some symptoms and maintaining independence longer.
Alzheimer’s Disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the U. S., and one in three seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or another dementia. According to the Alzheimer’s Association (link: https://www.alz.org/facts/overview.asp), more than five million Americans have Alzheimer’s, with someone developing the disease every 66 seconds.
Today, Alzheimer’s is the only top 10 cause of death that cannot be prevented, cured, or even slowed. Medical research is critical in finding new ways to help make a difference for people with Alzheimer’s, and with the many other types of conditions, injuries, and illnesses that affect the lives of millions of Americans and global citizens. One fantastic way to give back during the holiday season—and year round—is to volunteer for this research. Volunteers are essential to medical research and helping to make groundbreaking discoveries in medicine.
