Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month

June is National Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month. This month CarePlus Home Health took part in programming that helped us raise awareness and support for Alzheimer’s Disease. 

Alzheimer’s Disease is a progressive disease that damages memory and other important mental functions. Memory loss and difficulty thinking are common symptoms and contribute to mental decline. Some other symptoms are:

  • Problems with language, visualizing and spatial relationships 

  • Difficulty performing familiar tasks 

  • Disorientation with time and place

  • Poor judgment 

  • Attention issues

  • Changes in mood, behavior or personality  

  • Loss of desire or initiative
