“November was originally designated as National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month by President Ronald Reagan in 1983. It was done to help raise general awareness of the disease, and as a call to action to get people involved in both the recognition of the condition, as well as the levels of care that might be required for someone living from Alzheimer’s.
At the time of the designation, there were fewer than 2 million people in America who had Alzheimer’s disease. Today, the number of people afflicted has reached nearly 5.4 million.”
