ADRC offers support for Alzheimer's patients

If you have seen people wearing purple more often, that is because purple signifies and raises awareness for Alzheimer’s Awareness month.

 

According to the Alzheimer's Association, over 120,000 people in the State of Wisconsin are living with Alzheimer's or Dementia, and nearly 191,000 people are taking care of loved ones with such disease. Although there is no direct cause of Alzheimer’s, experts agree in the majority of cases the disease probably develops by many factors such as age, genetics, and environment. Dementia Care Specialist at ADRC Door County Sierra Witczak talks about some programs ADRC offers. 

 


The Aging and Disability Resource Center of Door County is hosting a “Walk to End Alzheimer’s” at Graham Park on September 9th. All funds raised through Walk to End Alzheimer's further the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
