Did you know that today is World Alzheimer's Awareness Day? Even though Mom didn't have Alzheimer's, I'm wearing purple for her today. Alzheimer's is the most common form of dementia, accounting for over 50% of all dementia cases, but there aren't awareness days for the lesser known forms. So I'm counting today as a dementia awareness day as well.
visiting their website here. They also have an app and if you have an Instagram account, you can set it up to automatically print out your pictures in a book every time you reach 60 photos. I do this and have several volumes of Chatbooks now, filled with pictures and memories. I never have to think about uploading to a photo center or organizing them in albums; I love it!
Another great place to donate, in honor of Alzheimer's Awareness Month, is at The DEANA Foundation ;)
I am challenging all of you to make a social media post today about World Alzheimer's (*and dementia*) Awareness! If you don't know what to post, just share this one!
