Why We Walk to End Alzheimer’s

The Home Care Plus team recently participated in the Charleston Walk to End Alzheimer’s. This wonderful event helps raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, research and support. Alzheimer’s, the most common form of dementia, is a debilitating disease that destroys a person’s memory and cognitive abilities over time. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, it currently affects over 5 million Americans and is the only cause of death in the top 10 in America that cannot be prevented or cured. Millions of caregivers provide billions of unpaid hours of care each year ┬áto individuals suffering from Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.
