In the US alone, over 10 million people care for a person with Alzheimer's disease. The cause of this devastating dementia is still not clearly understood and continues to create tremendous turmoil for tens of thousands of families every year.
November is National Alzheimer's Awareness Month. Although no cure is currently in sight, we can all do our part to help raise awareness of this terminal disease.
The Alzheimer's Association presents several ways for companies and individuals like you to help raise awareness. Aside from organizing Memory Walks or giving out coffee for donations, the easiest way you and/or your company can help out is to Go Purple!
The essence of this approach is simple: Dress yourself, your coworkers, and your office in purple.
