IPSF join the "Remember me" campaign
What is dementia? Dementia is a chronic non-communicable disease encompassing a wide array of symptoms like loss of memory and decline in social and thinking skills that impair a person’s ability to perform daily activities. Every 68 seconds, someone develops Alzheimer’s disease - the most common form of dementia. There is no cure for dementia, but symptoms can be managed by medications and certain therapies.
September is World Alzheimer’s Month. IPSF is teaming up with Alzheimer’s Disease International to raise awareness about dementia and its effect on patients, caregivers, & families. The theme for this year is “Remember me,” which highlights the importance of early detection and diagnosis of dementia. To learn more about World Alzheimer’s Month and our partners, visit www.worldalzmonth.org.
In honor of World Alzheimer’s Day on September 21st, 2017, IPSF is hosting a Letter Writing Challenge! The purpose of this challenge is to create motivating and encouraging letters to be sent to families, whose loved ones have been diagnosed with dementia. By this simple act of kindness, we can express our support and care for our future patients and their families. Click here to join our movement: https://goo.gl/forms/LT4Nx85Ia4rr57lv1.
Together, we can ensure that those burdened by dementia are remembered!
