June 2021 Alzheimer’s News
Event Date: 06/13/2021
June is Alzheimer’s and Brain awareness month. Please make brain health an important part of your return to normal from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Eat healthy. Have breakfast. Granola and fruit are great. At least have a granola bar. Salads, fruits and vegetables are wonderful. Pork is better for us than beef.
Share your story. You have heard Joyce Ruiz talk about the fact that her mother passed from Alzheimer’s. When you share, you will often hear others share in return. With over 6 million Americans affected, most of us know someone who has been affected by Alzheimer’s. June 20th is the summer solstice- the day with the most light; “The longest Day.” Wear purple, the official color of the Alzheimer’s movement to show your support.
You can learn more by going to www.alz.org/help-support/resources or the Alzheimer’s Helpline which is accessible 24/7 via 800-272-3900 and staffed by master’s level clinicians to assist with crisis situations, decision making, and disease information. You can find virtual dementia caregiver resources online at alz.org/covid19help. Tools and support are also available in Spanish.
