Did you know that Alzheimer’s and other dementias affect 50 million people worldwide? At Sodalis, we believe this number is staggering.
Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month
As a company, we are always on the mission to fight this disease, spread awareness and ultimately #EndAlz. Our lovely memory care residents are always in our hearts, but right now, during Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month, we continue to ask ourselves what we can do to help those with dementia. We also want to recognize the people who are there for our memory care residents, such as family, friends, neighbors and loved ones who may not have dementia, but are affected and changed by it nonetheless.
Campaigns from the Alzheimer’s Association help bring to the forefront a conversation that’s desperately needed, a conversation about our folks who suffer from some form of dementia. So how can we help exactly?
- Show Your Purple
The official color for the Alzheimer’s Association is purple. Show what you care for with pride with shirts, mugs, hats, and more. You can purchase your purple gear at the Alzheimer’s Association online store.
- Spread the News on Social Media
Social media can help raise awareness rapidly and is a great avenue to share your story. You can join Alzheimer’s support pages or discover people fighting just like you with the hashtag #ENDALZ. Share posts from the Alzheimer’s Association pages or create your own with the hashtag #ENDALZ.
