As many might be aware, September is World Alzheimer’s Disease Month. Since 2012 however, the organisation, Alzheimer’s Disease International has extended the commemoration of this Month.
Throughout the entire month of September (World Alzheimer’s Month), the aim of multiple campaigns is to inform and raise awareness among the public regarding this challenging disease, which has become one of the 21st century´s pathologies with the greatest impact.
September: World Alzheimer’s Disease Month
Our partner, Centro Neurológico Antonio Alayón, regularly produces articles with a special focus on this disease. The centre’s professionals are focused on helping relatives and caregivers of patients with dementia, informing them of new advances, addressing the behavioural symptoms of patients, providing caregiver advice, as well as transmitting a culture of prevention in the face of this terrible disease.
Below we bring you a selection of informative articles prepared by the Antonio Alayón Neurological Centre for caregivers of Alzheimer’s patients, both for those in the early stages as well as for those individuals who are not sufficiently trained in the disease.
The Neurological Centre strives every day to make a solid commitment in assisting those with Alzheimer’s as well as their families and caregivers. For any doubts or queries, or further information about World Alzheimer’s Month, please contact the Neurology Service of the Antonio Alayón Neurological Centre (Santa Cruz de Tenerife – Tenerife).
