IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT AND AN INVITATION

In America, Alzheimer’s Disease is the Number One cause of illness and death that cannot be treated or cured.   Currently, there are no therapies that can slow or stop Alzheimer’s, although there are many options for management of the symptoms.

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, right now, an estimated 5.5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s dementia.  Of these, 5.3 million are age 65 and older, and about 75% are women.

Every 66 seconds, another American will be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Although the signs and symptoms of  Alzheimer’s and other dementias are similar, Alzheimer’s is the most common cause of dementia.  The definitive diagnosis of Alzheimer’s, however,  cannot be made without a brain autopsy after death.

In Pennsylvania, it is projected that there will be a 18.5%  increase in Alzheimer’s patients between 1027 and 2025.

The physical, emotional and financial implications of Alzheimer’s Disease are enormous and devastating to sufferers, to their families and caregivers, and to the community-at-large.

If you wish to explore Alzheimer’s Disease further, the Alzheimer’s Association offers excellent information at https://www.alz.org/documents_custom/2017-facts-and-figures.pdf.

The Campus of the Jewish Home and the Alzheimer’s Association will present a free, four-session Caregiver Mini-Series to provide information about Alzheimer’s to anyone interested in learning about the disease, signs and symptoms,  research, caregiving, options for assistance, and much more.

We ask only that you register at (717) 0657.0700 or online to asullivan@jhgh.org.

And see our Facebook site https://www.facebook.com/jewishhomeharrisburg/  for reminders and more information.

Sessions are scheduled for:

Tuesday, February 27 at 1:00 PM

Tuesday, March 27 @ 1:00 PM.

Tuesday, April 24 @ 1:PM.

Tuesday, May 22 @ 1:PM.

We look forward to see you!
