Did you know that in the United States, someone develops Alzheimer’s every 66 seconds, and more than 5 million Americans are living with the disease? One in three seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or another dementia, and almost two-thirds of Americans with Alzheimer’s disease are women.
If you or someone you know is affected by Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia consider recruiting your friends and family & join us for the upcoming the Walk To End Alzheimer’s, taking place at Shelburne Museum on Sunday, September 18th. The Franklin County Rehab staff has put together a team to help raise awareness and fundraising dollars. Please consider joining our team!
