Every year one adult in four, along with one child in ten will suffer with mental health issues, this is profoundly affecting a million of lives and affecting how they maintain relationships and day to day life.

World Alzeheimer’s Day

/ 0 Comments

See the source image

Every year September 21st we recognise those who suffers Alzheimer around the world by joining in and spreading the word about World Alzheimers Day. This is an international campaign aimed at raising awareness for Alzheimers related to dementia.

Alzheimers is a progressive disease that impairs memory and other mental capacity. It is the most common form of dementia that spreads memory loss and loss of other essential abilities that are serious enough to disrupt an individuals daily lifestyle.

This year marks the 7th worlds Alzheimers month since the campaign was launched way back in 2012. From previous research an average of 2 out of 3 people globally have little or no understanding of Alzheimers or the symptoms associated in their countries.

Since World Alzheimers Day the impact is increasing, however the lack of information is disappointing and remains to be a huge problem that calls for action, most people think the disease is a part of ageing, though this may not be true a great risk factor of Alzheimers disease Is increasing age. This is evidently patients over the age of 65 or older, this doesn’t classify the disease as elderly as researches show that approximately 200,000 Americans suffer from the disease under the age of 65.

For this years event, we ask that organisations and interested individuals can get involved by supporting awareness through contacting their Alzheimers association in their specific country.
