Fighting Alzheimer's 

Alzheimer’s disease is one of the most critical public health issues in America. 5 million people are living with Alzheimer’s and over 16 million family and friends are caring for them. The number of Americans living with Alzheimer's is growing fast. In the United States, someone develops the disease every 65 seconds. One in three seniors dies with Alzheimer's or another form of dementia. This is why we unrelentingly advocate for the rights of the Alzheimer’s and dementia community. We advocate to change the trajectory of this disease.

Please join the Aging Commission High Steppers as we walk to End Alzheimer’s on Saturday November 9th 9:00AM at Tiger Lane 335 S. Hollywood Memphis, TN 38104. You can join our team by clicking on the link here.

If you know someone living with Alzheimer’s and they or their caregivers need support like Adult Day Care, home delivered meals, in home respite, personal care, or support groups, please call the Aging Commission of the Mid- South at 901-222-4111.
