Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month

June is Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month, a time to shine a light on the importance of brain health and the impact of Alzheimer’s disease on individuals, families, and communities.

Alzheimer’s is a progressive neurological disorder that affects memory, thinking, and behavior. It is the most common form of dementia, accounting for 60-80% of dementia cases. Over 6 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s, and this number is projected to triple by 2050!

The brain is a complex and mysterious organ, and researchers are still working to understand the causes and mechanisms of Alzheimer’s. However, we do know that brain health is closely linked to overall health, and that lifestyle factors such as exercise, diet, and social engagement can play a role in reducing the risk of cognitive decline.

This month, let’s come together to raise awareness and support for Alzheimer’s research, care, and advocacy. We can wear purple to show our solidarity, participate in fundraising events, and engage in conversations about brain health and dementia.

By working together, we can create a world where people with Alzheimer’s are supported, empowered, and able to live their best lives. Let’s shine a light on brain health and Alzheimer’s awareness this month and beyond!

"OMG!! This nursing home is amazing especially this one worker. Her name is Michelle. When I tell you she's so great at what she does, I mean she's great. I visit my aunt quite frequently who resides on the 7th floor. Prior to her being assigned on that floor; there were a lot of unsanitary conditions especially the stench and filth. All of a sudden I notice this girl (Michelle) has been working on the floor and all of those unsanitary conditions including the stench left. I never seen a person that take so much pride and dignity in cleaning all of those rooms and the whole floor from top to bottom. This floor is like a brand new floor that I never seen. I'm going to pay her a visit the next time I see my aunt and make her an offer at my firm as a executive assistant!"

Was successfully decanulatted and i thank the Respiratory team for doing an excellent job. The nursing staff and the anxillary staff as well are doing superb job. I reccomend this facility who has concers about their love ones or family membets who are not satisfied with the other facility to request for a transfer in this facility"

"This is a great place for rehabilitation... my father was at split rock on Baychester ave. In bronx and would go back and forth to hospital every 3 or 4 days because of carelessness with the staff... we said enough was enough when my father flatlined .WAYNE REHABILITATION has saved my fathers life. They are very good at diagnosing, rehabilitation and nutrition. Everyone there looks like they love their job. Never a problem with anyone any my father loves it there. He has recovered nicely and will be coming home soon. I highly recommend WAYNE REHABILITATION AND NURSING to everyone."

"I had a knee replacement and went to Wayne Center through a referral from a friend. I immediately noticed the ambiance of a modern facility to be very appealing clean well lit and organized. An administrative staff visited my room and explained their role and expectations. Nurses were very attentive and especially to the elderly and always smiling. Except for breakfast the food was very good quality and taste. Rehab staff was great I enjoyed working with Rosalyn she really made me work. Only drawback in rehab was they need another machine for legs. Staff was A+ from nurses, administration and maintenance-"noticed when their was a spill on the floor they would quickly clean up".
I would definitely refer anyone who is thinking of sending their parent, grandparent or loved one."
